Hour-by-hour Sheffield snow forecast: Met Office issues urgent yellow weather warning

After a day where snow effectively shut Sheffield down, the Met Office has issued another yellow warning for snow and ice in the area today.

Friday, 15th January 2021, 8:33 am

Yesterday (January 14) deep snow all over the city caused all public transport to be suspended, disruptions on the roads and schools to close to children of key workers.

Covid-19 vaccinations were cancelled as people were unable to get to surgeries, and many of Sheffield’s surrounding areas remain ‘snowed in’.

And while snow is still thick on the ground in many parts of the city, the Met Office has indicated that it is unlikely to snow any more today in Sheffield.
