http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glasgow#Climate Glasgow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Further information: Proper deluges, floods and thunderstorms are all very rare, and we usually miss out even on the modest extremes that occur throughout the rest of Britain.

Due to the surrounding topography, we usually tend to miss out on the major snowfall events that occur in the rest of Britain, as the snow usually occurs in Britain when winds are northerly or easterly. When snow is born on northerly winds, Glasgow is usually in the snow shadow of the high ground to the north. When it comes from the east, it usually fails to extend this far westward. This can lead to a very frustrating experience in the winter, much like the frustrating experience of continually missing out on the floods and warm weather.

I believe that Glasgow is also the cloudiest major city in the world, or at least number two behind Bradford.

Apologies for the non-clickable link. I don't know how that works here.

C. Too mild in the winter, too cool in the summer, too cloudy.

F. This is basically Seattle with an extended spring in place of summer. No thanks.

E. No point in an F as that is reserved for places where the weather conditions can actually kill you.

D. Overall a mild climate, with chilly winters and cool summers; not very bad, but it's way too rainy and cloudy for me. Very few sunshine hours.

I'm sure people in Glasgow have died of hypothermia before, especially considering how poorly the houses are insulated here. If Glasgow experienced true dangerous weather conditions at any time of the year, it would be a massive climate upgrade.

Going by my own personal rating system. I personally use F for very cold or very hot temperatures because I wouldn't like them.
