Glasgow weather: Exact time thunderstorms will hit city as Met Office issues warning

By Gillian Loney

Yesterday’s 27 degree heat was great while it lasted - but you’ll see a very different picture out of your window this morning.

Glasgow is among a number of locations set for thunderstorms, with the Met Office issuing a weather warning for Thursday and SEPA flood alerts in force for Scotland.

The change of weather may be unwelcome news for fans of Biffy Clyro heading along to Glasgow Green to see tonight’s outdoor show - not to mention those gearing up for TRNSMT.

Still, the heatwave looks set to stick around, with maximum temperatures of 21C in Glasgow.

The forecast reads: “The showers well scattered at first with bright spells during this morning, but some mist and fog patches. The showers becoming more widespread in the the afternoon and could be heavy with a risk of thunderstorms.”

And according to the Met Office prediction, those thunderstorms are set to roll in around 7pm…just in time for Biffy to take to the stage.

The yellow weather alert is in place from 10am until 8pm today, so the thunder could roll in sooner, with the potential for flooding and disruption to travel.
