Weekend weather: Weather in Sheffield to remain changeable with the risk of another thunderstorm

The Met Office has said that the weather is likely to remain changeable with a mixture of sunshine and scattered showers, becoming heavy at times, and there is also a risk that a thunderstorm could hit the city over the weekend.

Friday, 14th May 2021, 5:31 pm

Tomorrow will start cloudy with patchy rain, before sunny spells are expected to develop behind the rain, but scattered showers will re-develop through the afternoon, occasionally becoming heavy and thundery.

Sunday will be unsettled again, with further showers developing throughout the day, potentially heavy and accompanied by thunder and hail. The weather will turn mostly dry overnight.

Next week we’ll likely see the current trend of sunshine and showers continue with temperatures remaining around the average in the low-teens.

Monday will see variable amounts of cloud, again with scattered thundery showers during the middle of the day but clearing away later. Tuesday will be calmer, with sunshine and isolated showers.

Luckily, indoor hospitality can reopen on Monday, May 17, so people hoping to head out into the city can avoid getting caught up in unpleasant weather.
