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.

A short dry cool spell which due to the location of the high isn’t a s cold or a s long lived as predicted as yesterday. Day time temperatures on the cold to cool side up to Tuesday before until Wednesday while cloud returns keeping the nights mild from Tuesday. No sign of any rain so a dry spell coming. See www.sheffieldweather.co.uk/five_day_forecast.htm for more details. The weather data for December is now available. The Anemometer has been replaced and moved from the roof to a pole in the garden. Easier for maintenance. It’s also a different unit without any moving parts which I hope will be more reliable. So far the readings seem a bit lower from some directions which is to be expected. 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
The Year 2019 A brief round up The year was a warm one overall the second wettest on record and didn't have any measurable Snow at all. There were only 12 days with Snow falling. A quiet year with little in the way of Windy days as well. Thunderstorms as ever were also rare with only one Thunderstorm recorded was a weak affair and the other three days of recorded Thunder were in the form of Thundery showers. January was just on the mild side and very dry. This isn't the normal run of things as mild months tend to be wet while dry ones cold. Not this year though. It didn't manage to produce five days with observed Snow falling although it failed to settle. Rainfall came in at low 28.3mm. The month did produce two windy days with 53mph and 57mph being recorded in the 12th and the 13th. Otherwise it was fairly quiet overall. This was the first year ever that I had to cut the grass in January. Spring arrived a month early with 2nd joint warmest February on record. It did manage to record one day of Snow falling but that was it. Like January it was a dry month with only 32.3mm of rain and prompting fears of a major drought. Indeed there was a media frenzy with this being tied in with Climate change when coupled with the warmth. Like January it managed to produce two windy days with Gusts to 56mph and 54mph on the 8th and 9th. The main talking point though was the silly high temperates of 19.3C and 18.2C on the 26th to 27th. The period from the 21st to the 27th was more like May than February. There was a large difference between the average Max and Min this being 8C helped by some sharp early frosts of -5.5C on the 1st.The month was 2nd warmest by day and fourth month only where the max averaged double figures. This meant that the winter 2018/19 was a very mild one coming in at 5.9C +1.5C above average. Rainfall came in at 152.4mm just 66.8% of the Winter average. Continuing with Spring we move into March and despite being another warm month March did produce four days with Snow falling. Again it failed to provide a measurable depth. March also produced five windy days. 54 mph was reached on the 3rd. however there was an old fashioned Windy spell from the 12th to the 15th with Gusts to 55, 57, 58, 57mph on the 12th,13th,14,and 15th. The 15th was a day where the strong winds persisted over the day rather than a few minutes as front passed which has been the trend of late. March was the 1st of six months to pass the 100mm mark with double figures being recorded on the 5th, 6th,9th, 12th and 13th. The highest being 13,2mm on the 13th. After the 16th a switch was flicked somewhere in the sky and only 1.2mm fell from a total of 110mm for the month. The warmest day on the 20th with a high of 19C and the coldest was on the 10th with 6.6C. The month came in at 7.5C 1.2C above normal. April produced the first taste of summer on the 19th to the 22nd as temperatures rose to the lower to mid twenties. The values reached being 22C,23.1c,23.4C, 22.9C on the 19th,20th,21st and 22nd. The coolest day was the 14th with only 7.9C being the high. There were some notable cold nights as well. These being -1.2C, -1.9C, 1.5C on the 12th to the 14th. The month even produced a little Snow in the 3rd. The main feature of April was how dry it was with only 17.2mm of rainfall the 11th driest on record. 3.8mm on the 4th was the highest rainfall of the month. April was just on the mild side helped by 4 days of summer. The last month of a "four" month Spring came in on average. It was a yet another dry month renewing fears of a water shortage over summer. Rainfall did reach double figures once on the 8th with 13.5mm falling. The final total of 36.1mm was only 62.6% of the monthly average. Temperatures didn't very very much and basically what you got at the start of the month you got at the end so despite a mild start it ended up average. Just two days hit the seventies with 21.5C and 21.4C being the high on the 30th and 31st. The coldest day was the 8th with 7.8C being reached. Spring finally finished at overall at 9.3C +0.5C above normal. So nothing drastically above normal. Rainfall came in at 163.3mm 88.5% of the average rainfall. The dry months being offset by wet March. Thoughts moved onto summer and June was a poor month yet still managed create a new record for the hottest June day with 30.4C on the 29th of the month. The strange thing there wasn't any prolonged heat before this just two pleasant days in the low twenties. This hot day helped June get closer to average but it will surprise people that June was fractionally below average otherwise it would have been a cool month. The coldest day was on the 11th with 9.8C being the high. June however was a very wet month with 133.9mm of rain falling this 183.4% of the monthly average. This despite there being no Thunderstorms in June. Just over 60mm fell in three days between the 10th and 13th the amounts being 16.7mm,23.3mm,21.8mm. The month also has two dryish spells the 16th to the 22nd when only 3mm fell. The second spell the last five days when 0.2mm fell. 30mm fell between 23rd and the 25th with 23.1mm on the 24th. The month ended up at 14.1C -0.4C below average. After a washout of June summers hopes rested on July. It didn't disappoint temperature wise creating a new record of 35.1C on the 25th. This was part of a 4 day heatwave with 26.8C being reached on the 22nd, 30.5C on the 23rd and 27.7C on the 24th. So a fairly unpleasant spell if you were elderly or suffered from breathing issues or just plain hated hot weather. The first 21 days of July were almost perfect summer weather with temperatures in the low 20's generally. The coolest day was the 19th with 18.1C. The coldest night was the 3rd with 9C and the warmest night was the 26th with 17.2C. The first 18 days were fairly dry as well renewing fears of water shortages. This didn't last. Despite the first 18 days only bringing 7.4mm things started to change. The 12.5mm and 10mm on the 19th and 23rd were mere drops in the rain gauge. On the 27th 39.2mm fell and on the 30th 25.8mm fell.The total rainfall was 109.4mm for the month. The third month above 100mm. What Thunder there was was confined to weak storm on the 23rd and a distant rumble on the 26th. June was a warm month with the average at 17.8C +1.1C above normal. Rainfall was at 191.9% of the monthly average. So with two wet summer months one warm and one close to average whats was August going to throw into the mix? Well it just managed to get above average rainfall with 71.1mm 107.6% of normal. It was a warm month as well with 17.1C being the final average +0.8C above normal. The month produced a five day heatwave from the 23rd to the 27th with 24.6C,27.1C,30.4C,28.8C and 28.3C being the highs on the 23rd,24th,25th,26th and the 28th. Despite the warm days nights were fairly pleasant with temperatures just below or close to the mid teens. The warmest night on the 4th with 15.1C being reached. There weren't any really cold days with the lowest being 16.2C on the 14th. The 4th produced a rare Thunderstorm albeit brief and 6th had Thundery showers in the afternoon. The wettest day was on the 16th when 22.4mm fell. Double figures were also reached on the 4th,8th and 9th. After the 16th the great switch in sky was flicked again and only 5.4mm fell. So a wet 1st half followed by a dry second half on the month. Summer overall came in at 16.4C +0.6 degrees above normal so despite some record breaking temperatures it was only just above normal. Rainfall was 314mm 334.1% above normal. After a wet summer water shortages were of the menu would Autumn provide a heatwave? Well September certainly didn't and was average overall at 13.7C. The month was one of those where there was little temperature variation through the 30 days. The warmest was 23C on the 21st and the coldest was 12.8C on the 29th. Only the seven of the last eight days prevented a cold month being recorded as temperatures stayed in double figures with 13.5C being the joint warmest night on the 25tha nd 26th and earlier on the 4th. There were some chilly nights on the 8th with 5C and the 14th,18th and 19th when 6.5C, 6C and 6.5C being the low. The month was a very dry one up to the 21st with only 19.4mm falling. The changed on the 24th when 30.3mm fell the 28th when 27.9mm fell and another wet day on the 29th with 20.5mm. Yet another month and the 4th to go past 100mm, 138.8mm being the monthly total with over 90mm falling in the 7 days. The total for the month was 138.8mm 212.2% of the monthly average. October was a cold wet month. The wet spell from September with 40mm falling in the first 5 days. Most of it on the 1st with 21.7mm falling. It rained most days up the 20th with 15.9mm falling on the 14th. It was drier between the 18th and 24th with only 3.7mm of rain. This changed on the 25th when 48.2mm fell the 7th wettest 24hr period since 1989. Followed by 12.6mm the next day taking the total to 60.8mm for the two days. Only 3.9mm fell after that until the months end. However the monthly total of 154.9mm was 187.1% of the monthly average. Temperatures were again fairly uniform across the month and it looked like it would be an average month but a cooler spell for the last six days brought the month to be below average. The nights being the main driving force for this with 4C,2C,2C,1.3C and 1.5C being the lows on the 27th,28th,29th,30th and 31st. The coldest day was on the 26th when only 6.5C was reached while the warmest was 6th with 15.4C The warmest night was on the 1st with 9.5C being the low. October came in at 9.2C -1C below normal. November was a cold month and a very wet month indeed. It rained every day for the first seven days. The 17.1mm on the 6th was the warm up for the 7th. The 7th was the wettest day of the year and the 3rd wettest 24th hour period since 1989. The third wettest 48hr period and the 4th wettest 72 hour period. A total of 74.5mm fell during the day this bringing floods in Sheffield most notably around Meadowhall were the Christmas live wasn't canceled by due to neglect by management until the last minute leaving people stranded for hours inside the complex. Luckily the rain eased in the evening and the river Don reached the predicted levels but even this was enough to overflow the flood defenses which for bizarre reasons and unknown thinking were below the levels reached in 2007. If the rain hadn't eased the consequences would have been much worse. Downstream rivers exceeded 2007 levels and caused widespread flooding and some of these people now forgotten will be out of their houses for some time. Elsewhere poor maintenance by the local councils allowed flooding as gullies which still haven't been cleared blocked drains and caused local flooding. Sadly the lessons of 2007 have now been forgotten and it's only a matter of time when has a repeat of the widespread flooding possibly worse returns. The heavy rain cleared before it could turn to sleet or snow although further north it did manage to do so. The heavy rain also now brought the possibility of the wettest Autumn on record and possible the wettest year ever. More heavy rain fell on the 14th with 21.4mm but the main area of heavy passed through stalling to the north sparing the region from more dramatic flooding. The rain turned to sleet as the front returned south dying away rapidly as it did so and the region was lucky that it didn't suffer even worse flooding than 2007. However it did delay the fall in floodwater for the stricken areas. Rain continued with another 15.6mm on the 17th. Two dry days and one with a trace recording followed before rain albeit in small amounts returned. The month had only three dry days in total. The warmest day was on the 1st with 13.4C and the 26th with 11.4C. The coldest day was on the 30th with 2C being reached and a sharp air frost of -2.6C. Four other air frosts were recorded these being on the 9th and 10th and the 19th and 20th. The total rainfall for the month was 226.3mm 285% of the monthly average. A new record and Autumn as a whole came in at 520mm 228% above average. To put it in content this is nearly the entire rainfall recorded in the driest year of 1975. It's also 62.2% of the yearly average. This was also the first time we recorded six months with over 100mm. Temperature wise 5.4C. -1.4C below normal. You would expect the month to record some Snow with it being below average but no only one evening of sleet during the entire month. December and we all wondered if was going to be another very wet month and would we break the record of 1217.7mm set in 2012. We didn't with the month coming in below average at 73.7mm 84.8% of the monthly average. Two days reached double figures these being the 10th and 12th with 12mm and 12.5mm. The last four days being dry. The first two days recorded the first air frosts of the month at -2.5C and -0.6C. Two more followed on the 18th and 19th with -1C and -0.5C. The warmest day was on the 6th with 12.1C with 11.6C and 11.4C being reached on the 5th and 7th. 10.2C was reached on the 30th. The coldest day was 4.3C on the 1st and 14th. The month didn't cool down as it progressed and warmed up slightly towards the end bringing the temperature up to 5.5C +0.9C above average. It wasn't a windy month and Snow didn't fall at the station just one shower with sleet in the afternoon of the 14th. There was a slight dusting on the moors on the 14th. There wasn't any stormy weather wind wise during the month with 43mph being the highest. The year was the second wettest on record with 1132.6mm of rain falling. This equates to 135.4% of the yearly average. Temperature wise the year averaged 10.2C +0.4C above normal. This using the averages 1981 to 2010. Basically the temperatures have plateaued here since 2000. There was a cooling until 2012 and whether we are back on the warming trend or not remains to be seen as is open to speculation.

The Year 2019 A brief round up The year was a warm one overall the second wettest on record and didn't have any measurable Snow at all. There were only 12 days with Snow falling. A quiet year with little in the way of Windy days as well. Thunderstorms as ever were also rare with only one Thunderstorm recorded was a weak affair and the other three days of recorded Thunder were in the form of Thundery showers. January was just on the mild side and very dry. This isn't the normal run of things as mild months tend to be wet while dry ones cold. Not this year though. It didn't manage to produce five days with observed Snow falling although it failed to settle. Rainfall came in at low 28.3mm. The month did produce two windy days with 53mph and 57mph being recorded in the 12th and the 13th. Otherwise it was fairly quiet overall. This was the first year ever that I had to cut the grass in January. Spring arrived a month early with 2nd joint warmest February on record. It did manage to record one day of Snow falling but that was it. Like January it was a dry month with only 32.3mm of rain and prompting fears of a major drought. Indeed there was a media frenzy with this being tied in with Climate change when coupled with the warmth. Like January it managed to produce two windy days with Gusts to 56mph and 54mph on the 8th and 9th. The main talking point though was the silly high temperates of 19.3C and 18.2C on the 26th to 27th. The period from the 21st to the 27th was more like May than February. There was a large difference between the average Max and Min this being 8C helped by some sharp early frosts of -5.5C on the 1st.The month was 2nd warmest by day and fourth month only where the max averaged double figures. This meant that the winter 2018/19 was a very mild one coming in at 5.9C +1.5C above average. Rainfall came in at 152.4mm just 66.8% of the Winter average. Continuing with Spring we move into March and despite being another warm month March did produce four days with Snow falling. Again it failed to provide a measurable depth. March also produced five windy days. 54 mph was reached on the 3rd. however there was an old fashioned Windy spell from the 12th to the 15th with Gusts to 55, 57, 58, 57mph on the 12th,13th,14,and 15th. The 15th was a day where the strong winds persisted over the day rather than a few minutes as front passed which has been the trend of late. March was the 1st of six months to pass the 100mm mark with double figures being recorded on the 5th, 6th,9th, 12th and 13th. The highest being 13,2mm on the 13th. After the 16th a switch was flicked somewhere in the sky and only 1.2mm fell from a total of 110mm for the month. The warmest day on the 20th with a high of 19C and the coldest was on the 10th with 6.6C. The month came in at 7.5C 1.2C above normal. April produced the first taste of summer on the 19th to the 22nd as temperatures rose to the lower to mid twenties. The values reached being 22C,23.1c,23.4C, 22.9C on the 19th,20th,21st and 22nd. The coolest day was the 14th with only 7.9C being the high. There were some notable cold nights as well. These being -1.2C, -1.9C, 1.5C on the 12th to the 14th. The month even produced a little Snow in the 3rd. The main feature of April was how dry it was with only 17.2mm of rainfall the 11th driest on record. 3.8mm on the 4th was the highest rainfall of the month. April was just on the mild side helped by 4 days of summer. The last month of a "four" month Spring came in on average. It was a yet another dry month renewing fears of a water shortage over summer. Rainfall did reach double figures once on the 8th with 13.5mm falling. The final total of 36.1mm was only 62.6% of the monthly average. Temperatures didn't very very much and basically what you got at the start of the month you got at the end so despite a mild start it ended up average. Just two days hit the seventies with 21.5C and 21.4C being the high on the 30th and 31st. The coldest day was the 8th with 7.8C being reached. Spring finally finished at overall at 9.3C +0.5C above normal. So nothing drastically above normal. Rainfall came in at 163.3mm 88.5% of the average rainfall. The dry months being offset by wet March. Thoughts moved onto summer and June was a poor month yet still managed create a new record for the hottest June day with 30.4C on the 29th of the month. The strange thing there wasn't any prolonged heat before this just two pleasant days in the low twenties. This hot day helped June get closer to average but it will surprise people that June was fractionally below average otherwise it would have been a cool month. The coldest day was on the 11th with 9.8C being the high. June however was a very wet month with 133.9mm of rain falling this 183.4% of the monthly average. This despite there being no Thunderstorms in June. Just over 60mm fell in three days between the 10th and 13th the amounts being 16.7mm,23.3mm,21.8mm. The month also has two dryish spells the 16th to the 22nd when only 3mm fell. The second spell the last five days when 0.2mm fell. 30mm fell between 23rd and the 25th with 23.1mm on the 24th. The month ended up at 14.1C -0.4C below average. After a washout of June summers hopes rested on July. It didn't disappoint temperature wise creating a new record of 35.1C on the 25th. This was part of a 4 day heatwave with 26.8C being reached on the 22nd, 30.5C on the 23rd and 27.7C on the 24th. So a fairly unpleasant spell if you were elderly or suffered from breathing issues or just plain hated hot weather. The first 21 days of July were almost perfect summer weather with temperatures in the low 20's generally. The coolest day was the 19th with 18.1C. The coldest night was the 3rd with 9C and the warmest night was the 26th with 17.2C. The first 18 days were fairly dry as well renewing fears of water shortages. This didn't last. Despite the first 18 days only bringing 7.4mm things started to change. The 12.5mm and 10mm on the 19th and 23rd were mere drops in the rain gauge. On the 27th 39.2mm fell and on the 30th 25.8mm fell.The total rainfall was 109.4mm for the month. The third month above 100mm. What Thunder there was was confined to weak storm on the 23rd and a distant rumble on the 26th. June was a warm month with the average at 17.8C +1.1C above normal. Rainfall was at 191.9% of the monthly average. So with two wet summer months one warm and one close to average whats was August going to throw into the mix? Well it just managed to get above average rainfall with 71.1mm 107.6% of normal. It was a warm month as well with 17.1C being the final average +0.8C above normal. The month produced a five day heatwave from the 23rd to the 27th with 24.6C,27.1C,30.4C,28.8C and 28.3C being the highs on the 23rd,24th,25th,26th and the 28th. Despite the warm days nights were fairly pleasant with temperatures just below or close to the mid teens. The warmest night on the 4th with 15.1C being reached. There weren't any really cold days with the lowest being 16.2C on the 14th. The 4th produced a rare Thunderstorm albeit brief and 6th had Thundery showers in the afternoon. The wettest day was on the 16th when 22.4mm fell. Double figures were also reached on the 4th,8th and 9th. After the 16th the great switch in sky was flicked again and only 5.4mm fell. So a wet 1st half followed by a dry second half on the month. Summer overall came in at 16.4C +0.6 degrees above normal so despite some record breaking temperatures it was only just above normal. Rainfall was 314mm 334.1% above normal. After a wet summer water shortages were of the menu would Autumn provide a heatwave? Well September certainly didn't and was average overall at 13.7C. The month was one of those where there was little temperature variation through the 30 days. The warmest was 23C on the 21st and the coldest was 12.8C on the 29th. Only the seven of the last eight days prevented a cold month being recorded as temperatures stayed in double figures with 13.5C being the joint warmest night on the 25tha nd 26th and earlier on the 4th. There were some chilly nights on the 8th with 5C and the 14th,18th and 19th when 6.5C, 6C and 6.5C being the low. The month was a very dry one up to the 21st with only 19.4mm falling. The changed on the 24th when 30.3mm fell the 28th when 27.9mm fell and another wet day on the 29th with 20.5mm. Yet another month and the 4th to go past 100mm, 138.8mm being the monthly total with over 90mm falling in the 7 days. The total for the month was 138.8mm 212.2% of the monthly average. October was a cold wet month. The wet spell from September with 40mm falling in the first 5 days. Most of it on the 1st with 21.7mm falling. It rained most days up the 20th with 15.9mm falling on the 14th. It was drier between the 18th and 24th with only 3.7mm of rain. This changed on the 25th when 48.2mm fell the 7th wettest 24hr period since 1989. Followed by 12.6mm the next day taking the total to 60.8mm for the two days. Only 3.9mm fell after that until the months end. However the monthly total of 154.9mm was 187.1% of the monthly average. Temperatures were again fairly uniform across the month and it looked like it would be an average month but a cooler spell for the last six days brought the month to be below average. The nights being the main driving force for this with 4C,2C,2C,1.3C and 1.5C being the lows on the 27th,28th,29th,30th and 31st. The coldest day was on the 26th when only 6.5C was reached while the warmest was 6th with 15.4C The warmest night was on the 1st with 9.5C being the low. October came in at 9.2C -1C below normal. November was a cold month and a very wet month indeed. It rained every day for the first seven days. The 17.1mm on the 6th was the warm up for the 7th. The 7th was the wettest day of the year and the 3rd wettest 24th hour period since 1989. The third wettest 48hr period and the 4th wettest 72 hour period. A total of 74.5mm fell during the day this bringing floods in Sheffield most notably around Meadowhall were the Christmas live wasn't canceled by due to neglect by management until the last minute leaving people stranded for hours inside the complex. Luckily the rain eased in the evening and the river Don reached the predicted levels but even this was enough to overflow the flood defenses which for bizarre reasons and unknown thinking were below the levels reached in 2007. If the rain hadn't eased the consequences would have been much worse. Downstream rivers exceeded 2007 levels and caused widespread flooding and some of these people now forgotten will be out of their houses for some time. Elsewhere poor maintenance by the local councils allowed flooding as gullies which still haven't been cleared blocked drains and caused local flooding. Sadly the lessons of 2007 have now been forgotten and it's only a matter of time when has a repeat of the widespread flooding possibly worse returns. The heavy rain cleared before it could turn to sleet or snow although further north it did manage to do so. The heavy rain also now brought the possibility of the wettest Autumn on record and possible the wettest year ever. More heavy rain fell on the 14th with 21.4mm but the main area of heavy passed through stalling to the north sparing the region from more dramatic flooding. The rain turned to sleet as the front returned south dying away rapidly as it did so and the region was lucky that it didn't suffer even worse flooding than 2007. However it did delay the fall in floodwater for the stricken areas. Rain continued with another 15.6mm on the 17th. Two dry days and one with a trace recording followed before rain albeit in small amounts returned. The month had only three dry days in total. The warmest day was on the 1st with 13.4C and the 26th with 11.4C. The coldest day was on the 30th with 2C being reached and a sharp air frost of -2.6C. Four other air frosts were recorded these being on the 9th and 10th and the 19th and 20th. The total rainfall for the month was 226.3mm 285% of the monthly average. A new record and Autumn as a whole came in at 520mm 228% above average. To put it in content this is nearly the entire rainfall recorded in the driest year of 1975. It's also 62.2% of the yearly average. This was also the first time we recorded six months with over 100mm. Temperature wise 5.4C. -1.4C below normal. You would expect the month to record some Snow with it being below average but no only one evening of sleet during the entire month. December and we all wondered if was going to be another very wet month and would we break the record of 1217.7mm set in 2012. We didn't with the month coming in below average at 73.7mm 84.8% of the monthly average. Two days reached double figures these being the 10th and 12th with 12mm and 12.5mm. The last four days being dry. The first two days recorded the first air frosts of the month at -2.5C and -0.6C. Two more followed on the 18th and 19th with -1C and -0.5C. The warmest day was on the 6th with 12.1C with 11.6C and 11.4C being reached on the 5th and 7th. 10.2C was reached on the 30th. The coldest day was 4.3C on the 1st and 14th. The month didn't cool down as it progressed and warmed up slightly towards the end bringing the temperature up to 5.5C +0.9C above average. It wasn't a windy month and Snow didn't fall at the station just one shower with sleet in the afternoon of the 14th. There was a slight dusting on the moors on the 14th. There wasn't any stormy weather wind wise during the month with 43mph being the highest. The year was the second wettest on record with 1132.6mm of rain falling. This equates to 135.4% of the yearly average. Temperature wise the year averaged 10.2C +0.4C above normal. This using the averages 1981 to 2010. Basically the temperatures have plateaued here since 2000. There was a cooling until 2012 and whether we are back on the warming trend or not remains to be seen as is open to speculation.

Latest news

A short dry cool spell which due to the location of the high isn’t a s cold or a s long lived as predicted as yesterday. Day time temperatures on the cold to cool side up to Tuesday before until Wednesday while cloud returns keeping the nights mild from Tuesday. No sign of any rain so a dry spell coming. See www.sheffieldweather.co.uk/five_day_forecast.htm for more details. The weather data for December is now available. The Anemometer has been replaced and moved from the roof to a pole in the garden. Easier for maintenance. It’s also a different unit without any moving parts which I hope will be more reliable. So far the readings seem a bit lower from some directions which is to be expected. 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
The Year 2019 A brief round up The year was a warm one overall the second wettest on record and didn't have any measurable Snow at all. There were only 12 days with Snow falling. A quiet year with little in the way of Windy days as well. Thunderstorms as ever were also rare with only one Thunderstorm recorded was a weak affair and the other three days of recorded Thunder were in the form of Thundery showers. January was just on the mild side and very dry. This isn't the normal run of things as mild months tend to be wet while dry ones cold. Not this year though. It didn't manage to produce five days with observed Snow falling although it failed to settle. Rainfall came in at low 28.3mm. The month did produce two windy days with 53mph and 57mph being recorded in the 12th and the 13th. Otherwise it was fairly quiet overall. This was the first year ever that I had to cut the grass in January. Spring arrived a month early with 2nd joint warmest February on record. It did manage to record one day of Snow falling but that was it. Like January it was a dry month with only 32.3mm of rain and prompting fears of a major drought. Indeed there was a media frenzy with this being tied in with Climate change when coupled with the warmth. Like January it managed to produce two windy days with Gusts to 56mph and 54mph on the 8th and 9th. The main talking point though was the silly high temperates of 19.3C and 18.2C on the 26th to 27th. The period from the 21st to the 27th was more like May than February. There was a large difference between the average Max and Min this being 8C helped by some sharp early frosts of -5.5C on the 1st.The month was 2nd warmest by day and fourth month only where the max averaged double figures. This meant that the winter 2018/19 was a very mild one coming in at 5.9C +1.5C above average. Rainfall came in at 152.4mm just 66.8% of the Winter average. Continuing with Spring we move into March and despite being another warm month March did produce four days with Snow falling. Again it failed to provide a measurable depth. March also produced five windy days. 54 mph was reached on the 3rd. however there was an old fashioned Windy spell from the 12th to the 15th with Gusts to 55, 57, 58, 57mph on the 12th,13th,14,and 15th. The 15th was a day where the strong winds persisted over the day rather than a few minutes as front passed which has been the trend of late. March was the 1st of six months to pass the 100mm mark with double figures being recorded on the 5th, 6th,9th, 12th and 13th. The highest being 13,2mm on the 13th. After the 16th a switch was flicked somewhere in the sky and only 1.2mm fell from a total of 110mm for the month. The warmest day on the 20th with a high of 19C and the coldest was on the 10th with 6.6C. The month came in at 7.5C 1.2C above normal. April produced the first taste of summer on the 19th to the 22nd as temperatures rose to the lower to mid twenties. The values reached being 22C,23.1c,23.4C, 22.9C on the 19th,20th,21st and 22nd. The coolest day was the 14th with only 7.9C being the high. There were some notable cold nights as well. These being -1.2C, -1.9C, 1.5C on the 12th to the 14th. The month even produced a little Snow in the 3rd. The main feature of April was how dry it was with only 17.2mm of rainfall the 11th driest on record. 3.8mm on the 4th was the highest rainfall of the month. April was just on the mild side helped by 4 days of summer. The last month of a "four" month Spring came in on average. It was a yet another dry month renewing fears of a water shortage over summer. Rainfall did reach double figures once on the 8th with 13.5mm falling. The final total of 36.1mm was only 62.6% of the monthly average. Temperatures didn't very very much and basically what you got at the start of the month you got at the end so despite a mild start it ended up average. Just two days hit the seventies with 21.5C and 21.4C being the high on the 30th and 31st. The coldest day was the 8th with 7.8C being reached. Spring finally finished at overall at 9.3C +0.5C above normal. So nothing drastically above normal. Rainfall came in at 163.3mm 88.5% of the average rainfall. The dry months being offset by wet March. Thoughts moved onto summer and June was a poor month yet still managed create a new record for the hottest June day with 30.4C on the 29th of the month. The strange thing there wasn't any prolonged heat before this just two pleasant days in the low twenties. This hot day helped June get closer to average but it will surprise people that June was fractionally below average otherwise it would have been a cool month. The coldest day was on the 11th with 9.8C being the high. June however was a very wet month with 133.9mm of rain falling this 183.4% of the monthly average. This despite there being no Thunderstorms in June. Just over 60mm fell in three days between the 10th and 13th the amounts being 16.7mm,23.3mm,21.8mm. The month also has two dryish spells the 16th to the 22nd when only 3mm fell. The second spell the last five days when 0.2mm fell. 30mm fell between 23rd and the 25th with 23.1mm on the 24th. The month ended up at 14.1C -0.4C below average. After a washout of June summers hopes rested on July. It didn't disappoint temperature wise creating a new record of 35.1C on the 25th. This was part of a 4 day heatwave with 26.8C being reached on the 22nd, 30.5C on the 23rd and 27.7C on the 24th. So a fairly unpleasant spell if you were elderly or suffered from breathing issues or just plain hated hot weather. The first 21 days of July were almost perfect summer weather with temperatures in the low 20's generally. The coolest day was the 19th with 18.1C. The coldest night was the 3rd with 9C and the warmest night was the 26th with 17.2C. The first 18 days were fairly dry as well renewing fears of water shortages. This didn't last. Despite the first 18 days only bringing 7.4mm things started to change. The 12.5mm and 10mm on the 19th and 23rd were mere drops in the rain gauge. On the 27th 39.2mm fell and on the 30th 25.8mm fell.The total rainfall was 109.4mm for the month. The third month above 100mm. What Thunder there was was confined to weak storm on the 23rd and a distant rumble on the 26th. June was a warm month with the average at 17.8C +1.1C above normal. Rainfall was at 191.9% of the monthly average. So with two wet summer months one warm and one close to average whats was August going to throw into the mix? Well it just managed to get above average rainfall with 71.1mm 107.6% of normal. It was a warm month as well with 17.1C being the final average +0.8C above normal. The month produced a five day heatwave from the 23rd to the 27th with 24.6C,27.1C,30.4C,28.8C and 28.3C being the highs on the 23rd,24th,25th,26th and the 28th. Despite the warm days nights were fairly pleasant with temperatures just below or close to the mid teens. The warmest night on the 4th with 15.1C being reached. There weren't any really cold days with the lowest being 16.2C on the 14th. The 4th produced a rare Thunderstorm albeit brief and 6th had Thundery showers in the afternoon. The wettest day was on the 16th when 22.4mm fell. Double figures were also reached on the 4th,8th and 9th. After the 16th the great switch in sky was flicked again and only 5.4mm fell. So a wet 1st half followed by a dry second half on the month. Summer overall came in at 16.4C +0.6 degrees above normal so despite some record breaking temperatures it was only just above normal. Rainfall was 314mm 334.1% above normal. After a wet summer water shortages were of the menu would Autumn provide a heatwave? Well September certainly didn't and was average overall at 13.7C. The month was one of those where there was little temperature variation through the 30 days. The warmest was 23C on the 21st and the coldest was 12.8C on the 29th. Only the seven of the last eight days prevented a cold month being recorded as temperatures stayed in double figures with 13.5C being the joint warmest night on the 25tha nd 26th and earlier on the 4th. There were some chilly nights on the 8th with 5C and the 14th,18th and 19th when 6.5C, 6C and 6.5C being the low. The month was a very dry one up to the 21st with only 19.4mm falling. The changed on the 24th when 30.3mm fell the 28th when 27.9mm fell and another wet day on the 29th with 20.5mm. Yet another month and the 4th to go past 100mm, 138.8mm being the monthly total with over 90mm falling in the 7 days. The total for the month was 138.8mm 212.2% of the monthly average. October was a cold wet month. The wet spell from September with 40mm falling in the first 5 days. Most of it on the 1st with 21.7mm falling. It rained most days up the 20th with 15.9mm falling on the 14th. It was drier between the 18th and 24th with only 3.7mm of rain. This changed on the 25th when 48.2mm fell the 7th wettest 24hr period since 1989. Followed by 12.6mm the next day taking the total to 60.8mm for the two days. Only 3.9mm fell after that until the months end. However the monthly total of 154.9mm was 187.1% of the monthly average. Temperatures were again fairly uniform across the month and it looked like it would be an average month but a cooler spell for the last six days brought the month to be below average. The nights being the main driving force for this with 4C,2C,2C,1.3C and 1.5C being the lows on the 27th,28th,29th,30th and 31st. The coldest day was on the 26th when only 6.5C was reached while the warmest was 6th with 15.4C The warmest night was on the 1st with 9.5C being the low. October came in at 9.2C -1C below normal. November was a cold month and a very wet month indeed. It rained every day for the first seven days. The 17.1mm on the 6th was the warm up for the 7th. The 7th was the wettest day of the year and the 3rd wettest 24th hour period since 1989. The third wettest 48hr period and the 4th wettest 72 hour period. A total of 74.5mm fell during the day this bringing floods in Sheffield most notably around Meadowhall were the Christmas live wasn't canceled by due to neglect by management until the last minute leaving people stranded for hours inside the complex. Luckily the rain eased in the evening and the river Don reached the predicted levels but even this was enough to overflow the flood defenses which for bizarre reasons and unknown thinking were below the levels reached in 2007.

Four other air frosts were recorded these being on the 9th and 10th and the 19th and 20th. The total rainfall for the month was 226.3mm 285% of the monthly average. A new record and Autumn as a whole came in at 520mm 228% above average. To put it in content this is nearly the entire rainfall recorded in the driest year of 1975. It's also 62.2% of the yearly average. This was also the first time we recorded six months with over 100mm. Temperature wise 5.4C. -1.4C below normal. You would expect the month to record some Snow with it being below average but no only one evening of sleet during the entire month. December and we all wondered if was going to be another very wet month and would we break the record of 1217.7mm set in 2012. We didn't with the month coming in below average at 73.7mm 84.8% of the monthly average. Two days reached double figures these being the 10th and 12th with 12mm and 12.5mm. The last four days being dry. The first two days recorded the first air frosts of the month at - 2.5C and -0.6C. Two more followed on the 18th and 19th with -1C and -0.5C.
