‘Cold’ is the theme of the day for Sheffield once again say forecasters, with further snowfall and disruption expected as the Beast from the East 2 rages on.

Tuesday, 9th February 2021, 8:14 am

An amber-level weather warning from the Met Office remains in place for the city and much of northern England until Wednesday (February 10) as temperatures plunge as low as -4 °C.

But the Met Office says it ‘will feel more like -6 °C’ as cold air emanating from Russia and Eastern Europe moves across the UK.

Today snow showers are set to continue with ‘some brightness’ between showers.

Further accumulations of snow may lead to disruption such as traffic issues, school closures and power cuts while icy stretches will persist on untreated surfaces with a ‘bitterly cold easterly wind’.

Tonight snow and possible hail showers will continue to affect most areas overnight, with some brief clear spells. It will feel ‘bitterly cold in the brisk winds’ with a hard frost, say forecasters.

Snow showers continuing through Wednesday will probably turn lighter and less frequent by evening, with some bright or sunny spells.
