A walk of extreme contrasts: from Sheffield's urban centre through narrow valleys and across wild moorland to the Dark Peak's gritstone edges, and a lush finish into the Hope Valley

10 Day Forecast for Sheffield

Page loading ...

Showers dying out, a widespread frost overnight as winds decrease.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers slowly fading and becoming confined to the hills this evening and overnight. Some lengthy clear spells developing especially in the east, and with winds decreasing a widespread frost will develop by morning. Minimum Temperature -2C.

Friday:

A colder day with sunny spells after a widespread early frost. However, towards dusk and through the evening, a band of wintry showers spreading from the northwest. Maximum Temperature 6C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Staying cold through Saturday and Sunday with sunny spells and isolated wintry showers after overnight frost. Turning breezier. Monday, morning rain, some brief hill snow, followed by scattered showers. Windy.

Day 6 to 15

A cold and frosty start for both Tuesday and Wednesday, then a mixture of sunshine and showers, these wintry at times with snow over northern hills, and with possibly spells of more persistent rain for some eastern areas. It will be windy too with a risk of gales in the north and east, and this will make it feel particularly cold. These cold and showery conditions look likely to continue into the weekend, with the showers most frequent and wintry in the north and east, with drier, sunnier weather elsewhere. Thereafter slow moving weather patterns continue to be the more likely scenario into early December, with some periods of rain at times, especially in the west, and with temperatures probably near to or slightly below the average.

Day 16 to 30

During this period of December, weather patterns are likely to continue to be fairly slow moving and this brings more uncertainty than normal into the forecast. It is probable that there will be some spells of wet, windy and at times mild weather with the wettest weather probably across western and perhaps some southern parts of the country. These may be interspersed with some drier and brighter spells too, when it could become colder with the risk of frost overnight. On the whole, temperatures may be a little colder than normal. Later in the month, it may become more generally unsettled and milder.
