Sheffield weather: Thunderstorms and scattered showers expected as we head into the weekend
The sunshine and hot temperatures will continue heading into the weekend but the Met Office has said that thunderstorms are likely.
Following the bank holiday when temperatures climbed up to the hottest of the year, the weather is expected to remain relatively dry, with scatterings of showers at times.
We’ll see plenty of sunny intervals throughout Friday and into the weekend and the maximum temperature will stay around the 20-degree mark for the remainder of the week, feeling a lot more like summer.
Thursday will be overcast during the morning, changing to sunny intervals during the afternoon. However, there is a chance of some thundery showers, according to the Met Office
Friday will be a mostly dry day with plenty of spells of warm sunshine. A mild night with clear skies will follow. Saturday will continue to be dry and warm, with sunshine throughout the day. However, Sunday will be a cloudier day, with the chance of scattered showers developing for many areas - it will turn drier later in the day with some late sunny spells.
The pollen count throughout the week will be medium.
Mixed conditions are expected towards the start of next week, with a good deal of fine and dry weather around, although equally cloudier conditions and outbreaks of rain will gradually work its way in from the west.
Otherwise, temperatures will trend towards the milder side of average with the chance of some very warm or hot spells at times. Into the following week, a trend towards more settled and dry conditions overall. However, this accompanied by a risk of some showers and longer spells of light rain developing at times.
