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 the wind and 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 and I’ll get back to you.

Tuesday will be cooler but still very mild for the time of year. However Wednesday onwards sees the weather turn unsettled still mild and very mild by night but heavy showers or longer spells of rain as well. Thunderstorm risk for Wednesday is very small so unlikely to be any storms int eh next four days. There could be a brief windy spell Saturday morning but this depends on the exact track of the low pressure on the day. See www.sheffieldweather.co.uk/five_day_forecast.htm for more details. March weather data has been uploaded I’ve updated the yearly averages to include the season averages as well and matched the format across the years for consistency. Live weather has also been updated to the latest version of Steel Gauges. Two of the web cams have been updated these being the ones pointing north west and east. They provide a sharper image and also a much clearer night image. Those looking for last months data will find it here www.sheffieldweather.co.uk/stephenson.htm and for automated station you’ll find it here www.sheffieldweather.co.uk/davis_weather_data.htm Monthly average values can be found on this page www.sheffieldweather.co.uk/stephenson.htm while those wishing to see the Davis yearly records can look here. www.sheffieldweather.net/cumulus/thisyear.htm and for monthly records from 2003 here www.sheffieldweather.net/cumulus/monthlyrecord.htm The Davis weather station all records can be seen here www.sheffieldweather.net/cumulus/record.htm
Winter 2018/19 A brief round up Early Snowfall in Autumn had whetted the appetite for those looking forward to a cold winter with plenty of Snow. However one strange little fact that since 1955 once the average temperature has gone over 6C we have never recorded a cold winter. The closest we came was the winter from 1971/72 which did have a cool January and February but weren't cold enough to bring the average below normal. During the Winter the stratosphere had a sudden warming event could lead to blocking in the northern hemisphere but this never got of the ground due to other unknown factors. Even if it had produced plenty of northern Blocking there would be no guarantee that the high pressure would form in the right place. As it was America froze and Europe got buried under plenty of Snow while the UK saw very little and Sheffield only managed a few dusting’s. There wasn't any measurable Snow during the entire Winter. December kicked off on a very mild note and it was wet as well. The daytime temperatures were more akin to the first part of November than December. The first seven days saw double figures on five days. It was wet with 10.7mm and 10.3mm being recorded on the 5th and 7th. After the 7th things cooled down a little but it was only by the 12th did temperatures briefly drop to average and below. This lasted until the 17th when mild conditions returned. This period produced the only interesting day of weather and some very poor forecasting by the metogroup and met office. For days in advance modeling showed that any precipitation that turned up on the 15th would be rain and not snow and also it could be freezing rain. This was due to warmer air pushing quickly in above the cold layer of air based at the surface. This meant that any falling precipitation of Snow would melt into rain then freeze when it hits the ground. The only places this wouldn't happen would be Scotland and the far east and North east of England where Snow did fall. On the day there warnings of heavy Snow and freezing rain from the midlands northwards. I had a very cold walk in the peak district and it started raining while I was up there. Luckily it didn't last long if it had there were a lot of people up there not suitably dressed. So rain it was despite numerous reports of rain away from Scotland the warnings were left on. Luckily the air temperature was just above freezing so the pictured chaos didn't quiet happen but it was still tricky out there. Again more proof that the present warning system is unfit for the purpose. There was dry spell from the 9th to the 14th but rain soon returned as it once again turned milder. By the 23rd it looked like December was going to hit 100mm mark however high pressure began building over the UK. Normally you'd expect high pressure to bring pleasant days and cold nights but not in this case as temperatures returned to double figures with the three of the last five days going back to weather you'd expect in early November. The warmest day in December was on the 6th with 12.3C being reached and the warmest night was the 7th with 10.5C. The coldest day was 14th with 2.3C and the 14th and 15th had the coldest nights at -2C. Never a stormy month with the winds failing to hit 50 mph so a storm free month. January was a month of two halves a mild dry start and a dry cold 2nd half. The first part of the month was dominated by a high pressure centered over the UK. In the past High pressure in this position tended to stay around and just jiggle slightly to the west or to the east before sitting back over the UK. So it was in this case. The dry mild start of the month allowed the first cut of the grass on the 6th. Normally this couldn't be done due to it being to wet. The 7th produced the warmest day with 11.1C being reached. Double figures were also reached on the 12th and 13th and again on the 25th. The warmest night was on the 1st with 8.4C being the low while the coldest day was on the 31st which was an ice day with a max of only -0.7C and a low of -4.5C. The weather turned colder on the 17th with the first snow on the winter falling on the 17th a slight dusting. On the 18th light rain and wet snow provided a slight covering which melted during the 19th. The mild spell between the 24th and 26th stopped any chance of the month ending up just below average. Although it turn cold after this the Met office yet again issued a poor weather warning for snow. Any snow lovers had to go into the peak district to see any snow. A brief snow shower which didn't leave very much on the 30th summed January up and the winter as whole as a damp squib. January did provided a rare wind storm when a lengthy spell of produced a gust of 53mph on the 12th and 57mph the day after. This was the only stormy spell of the winter. There was very little rain with the highest being 5.4mm and only 28.3mm fell through the month. Many people predicted February would be cold due to Stratospheric warming. Alas spring arrived instead. However the first few days were below average plenty of air frosts but not of white stuff called Snow. It was only by the 15th when the average went above normal. Spring really arrived by the 7th and continued without any break until the end of the month. A crazy high temperature of 19.3C degrees was reached on the 26th. These would be an average high more akin to May than end of February. The high temperatures continued to the end of the month. It was also a dry month meaning it was a rare dry very mild winter.
