UK forecast for the next 5 days

Drier and brighter on Saturday, though rain spreading north-eastwards later.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers will gradually become confined to north-western coastal fringes and the far north, giving a predominantly dry night for most. Clear spells will allow temperatures to fall low enough for a local rural grass frost.

Saturday:

Drier and brighter for many with sunny spells. However, showers will affect northern Scotland and patchy rain will reach south-western parts during the afternoon.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rain clearing to blustery showers on Sunday. Showers at first on Monday followed by further heavy rain. Sunshine and heavy thundery showers on Tuesday. Windy at times and mainly cool.

Updated at: 1501 on Fri 29 May 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Jun 2015 to Friday 12 Jun 2015:

Many places should be dry on Wednesday with some sunshine, the best of this in southern and eastern areas. More unsettled conditions, with outbreaks of rain and brisk winds, probably spreading into northern areas later on Wednesday and during Thursday, with the south probably remaining dry, and warmer than we've seen recently. Thereafter it looks as though high pressure will become established over northern parts of the UK, bringing generally dry, fine conditions for most. There is a risk later in the period that the south will see some heavy and thundery showers spreading up from the continent. Temperatures generally warm or very warm in most inland areas. Coastal areas in the east, may well be a little cooler at times with winds off the chilly North Sea.

UK Outlook for Saturday 13 Jun 2015 to Saturday 27 Jun 2015:

High pressure looks as though it will be established across the north of the UK during much of this period. This will bring fine and dry conditions to most parts with warmer conditions than of late across the north, and especially the northwest. It is also expected to be very warm in the south, although here there is a risk of some heavy and thundery showers spreading up from continental Europe. Confidence in the forecast evolution declines towards the end of June; however, the general trend looks set to remain similar, with drier conditions in the north, some showers possible in the south, and generally warm temperatures.

Glasgow information

Scotland's largest city, Glasgow, is located in the West Central Lowlands on the river Clyde. With a city council population approaching 600,000 - and almost double that figure living in the surrounding area - Glasgow is the third most populous city in the United Kingdom.

Glasgow has one of the largest concentrations of galleries, cinemas and theatres in the whole of Britain. The Theatre Royal is the base of Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera, while venues such as King Tut's Wah Wah Hut and the Carling Academy have hosted some of the top names in music. Sports fans need look no further than the city's great football clubs. Alongside the lesser-known Partick Thistle you'll find Glasgow Celtic, first British winners of the European Cup, and Glasgow Rangers, seven-time domestic treble winners. Games between the 'Old Firm' as they are known are often passionate affairs and are keenly fought.

Glasgow can be one of the wettest locations in the UK during winter with an average of over 300mm of rain falling between the start of December and the end of February. Temperatures are colder than the UK average with maximums of 6 °C and minimums of 1 °C. Similarly sunlight hours are lower than average. During the last week of December 1995 temperatures fell as low as -20 °C at Glasgow airport. This unusually cold weather burst water pipes and resulted in severe flooding in unoccupied homes and commercial properties.

Temperatures in spring are usually around the UK average for Glasgow. March through to May sees daytime maxima rise from 8 °C to 15 °C. Low rainfall averages mean that late spring and early summer is often the driest time for Glasgow. Accumulation is around 221 mm, meaning rainfall is below the UK totals for spring months.

Summer temperatures in Glasgow are a little below the UK average but higher than the regional average due to the urban heat island effect. Expect highs of 19 °C in July. Rainfall accumulation starts to increase from August, and the number of days with rainfall greater than 1mm does as well.

Sunshine hours start to drop significantly from September down to a seasonal low of 51 hours in November. Autumn also sees the highest rainfall figures on average with almost double the amount of rain falling in October than June. Temperatures in the autumn months range from 9 to 16 °C, around the UK average.
