The climate of Glasgow (Scotland)
Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and the third largest city in Great Britain. Glasgow is located in the western part of the centrally situated lowlands and has a moderate sea climate. Winters are comparable to Dutch winters. From December to February 24 hour temperatures are just below 3 degrees Celsius on average. During the winter months snow is not uncommon and during the night subzero temperatures can be recorded. During the day subzero temperatures are not uncommon either. However, longer frosty periods hardly ever occur. During spring the climate is relatively driest and sunniest. Bear in mind that there still will be between 65 to 80 millimeters of precipitation per month and only 6 hours of sunshine per day. During the summer maximum temperatures are around or just below 20 degrees Celsius on average. Extreme heat hardly ever occurs in Glasgow. The highest temperature on record for Glasgow is 31.2 degrees Celsius. This was on August 4, 1974.

The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
