What will the weather be like in Glasgow ahead of the October mid-term break?

School’s out in the city from October 11 to October 15, with AccuWeather forecasting mild temperatures, rainfall and brief periods of sunshine.

The half-term will begin at its warmest, with highs of 16℃ despite very cloudy skies with 96% cover.

It’s more of the same for the second and third day of the break, though instead it gets cloudier with 98% cloud coverage on Tuesday October 12.

In brighter news, the sun is set to make an appearance above Glasgow on October 14, but temperatures are expected to remain  at an average of 12℃ for that time of year.

The holiday ends on a sour note however, with 11.4mm and six hours of rainfall expected on Friday October 15, to dampen children’s spirits ahead of their return to school.

The rest of 2021 is expected to be a cold one in Glasgow, with experts, Climate Data, forecasting 23 rainy days throughout the last two months of the year.

December is estimated to be the wettest as 121mm of rainfall is expected, as well as average temperatures of 3.3℃ with winter fast approaching.

The end of the year is largely dry and cloudy, with intermittent showers and sunshine along with temperatures that will become increasingly chilly.
