In Sheffield, the barometric pressure typically ranges from around 990 to 1040 millibars throughout the year. The city experiences four distinct seasons, with mild springs, warm summers, cool autumns, and cold winters. The barometric pressure tends to be more stable during the spring and summer months, while it can vary more during the autumn and winter.
Surrounded by hills and located in the picturesque South Yorkshire region, Sheffield's landscape greatly influences its atmospheric pressure. The surrounding hills act as a natural barrier, causing the city to experience a relatively stable barometric pressure. However, when strong weather systems approach, such as low-pressure fronts, the hills can enhance or hinder the movement of air masses, affecting the atmospheric pressure in Sheffield and leading to changes in weather patterns.
