The 22-year-old joined the Warriors in 2010 and has scored 508 points in 70 appearances for the Pro12 side, helping them into the play-offs in three of the last four seasons.
"I'm really happy to have signed this new deal to stay in Glasgow for another two years," said Weir.
"We have a really strong squad, with a lot of competition for places and it's great to see so many young players coming through.
"It was an easy decision for me to stay. I was born in Glasgow and I'm very proud to be playing for my local club and representing my country.
"Now that this has been agreed I'm looking forward to a successful end to the season, as we try and reach the play-offs once again."
Weir has won 12 caps for his country and kicked a last-gasp drop goal in last month's Six Nations win in Italy, but he experienced the other side of the coin on Saturday when he had a pass intercepted for a late try in the home loss to France.
Glasgow head coach Gregor Townsend said: "We are delighted that Duncan has committed to the club for the next two seasons and this is really good news for us and for Scottish rugby.
"He has made a great return from injury this season and has been a consistent performer for the club and for Scotland during this year's Six Nations.
"His drop-goal to win the Italy game was top drawer and he has shown that he can operate at the highest level of the game.
"Duncan works hard at getting better every day at training and he's made great strides in both the technical and tactical side of playing at stand-off. His ability to lead the attack is beginning to become a real strength of his game.
"He has a big role to play at the club over the next couple of years."
