Sheffield Weather

Welcome to the Sheffield Weather Page. A Weather site dedicated to the weather of Sheffield South Yorkshire united kingdom. Here you will find live weather feeds, lightning detection and records of the weather going back to 1955. I also do a local forecast five day weather forecast Sheffield and Rotherham.

The family has been recording weather since 1955 and over the years the recording of weather has moved into the digital world allowing me to present live weather data so you can see what the wind is doing , how hot it’s getting or how cold it’s getting. You can check whether there are any storms nearby by looking at the live lightning.

If you’re looking for data well you can access the electronic data from 2002 to present and also Weather data recorded via the Stephenson screen since 2006. You can also access all of the temperature and rainfall averages from 1955.

If you’re wishing to have a copy of the data drop me a line via the email button and I’ll get back to you. If you do use the data either on a web site or for any scientific papers please Donate by clicking on the Donate menu. This will help to replace equipment used for the site which is very expensive and does wear out over the years or simple gets broken. I would also be interested in any papers that are published so send me the link. I may even link to the paper from this web site.
