What's The Weather Like In Glasgow?
Glasgow is the most poulated city in Scotland, in the UK. The weather in Scotland's 'other' city, is relatively standard Scottish weather which basically means the weather can change from hour to hour and at any time. Sunny, clear days may be interrupted by the skies opening up.
Typically Scottish Weather - Mild And Wet
Glasgow does have a few differences to the rest of the country, mainly in that it is slighter milder than the rest of Scotland. This is because its position in the south west means that the Gulf Stream currents flow up the Clyde estuary from the Atlantic Ocean and consequently have a warming effect on the area.
Glasgow is also sheltered by the surrounding Clyde Valley hills which keep the city fairly humid year round. The weather in Glasgow, and Scotland as a whole, is not really sun0tan weather, but it does lead to the lush, green countryside that Scotland is known for.
Summer Weather in Glasgow
Summers in Glasgow are warm, but certainly not hot, and begin in mid-June. While May and June are, on average, the driest months of the year, you can still expect rainfall at any time throughout the season. The average daily temperature throughout June is 12 °C, while July and August see daily average of 14°C and highs of 18°C.
Enjoyable Weather - Usually!
The weather is the most enjoyable during the summer months (although come prepared with an umbrella). However, this is also the busiest time for tourism, so if you're not a fan of crowds and busy restaurants and attractions then best to plan your trip in the shoulder seasons of Spring and Autumn.
You can take advantage of off-season fares and will have a better chance at scoring a room on one of the many area hotels that sell out during the summer period, though keep in mind that in the depths of off season many of the popular summer attractions may only be open s few days of the week, if at all.
Winter Weather In Glasgow
Winters arecold in Glasgow but fortunately they don't begin to set in until late October. Throughout the height of winter (December to February) the average daily temperature sits at about 4°C. In February the average minimum falls to a chilly 0°C.
Does It Snow In Glasgow?
From November through until March you can expect snowfall in Glasgow, and if it doesn't settle in the city you can definitely make your snow angels in the surrounding hill sides.
Spring and Autumn Weather In Glasgow
May and September are both quite pleasant times to visit, as May is one of the drier months and September really sees an extension of summer, seeing average highs of 16 °C.
Because of the country's northerly location and its proximity to low pressure systems in the Atlantic, most of Scotland is generally cloudier and few degrees colder than England. For example, the average daily maximum temperature at Glasgow in July is 19°C compared with 22°C in London.
