ZH/AG - Rain is coming!

Just looked on the preciptation radar and seen the big block of rain heading our way. I don't remember ever seeing areas of red on the map signifying >100mm/hour of rain before. Looks like things are about to get very wet in ZH/AG!

Re: ZH/AG - Rain is coming!

Just been watching that myself and wondering whether to make a break for it and go home early before train/tram/traffic/pedestrian chaos ensues. I don't think my meagre umbrella is going to cope with that deluge - think I need more of a wet suit and a snorkel...

Re: ZH/AG - Rain is coming!

It's gotten darker, windy and a bit eerie....my dog is also starting to pace and whine which under these conditions likely means a storm is coming.

Plus the "danger" section of www.meteoswiss.ch is down.....

I hope it's a good one!

Re: ZH/AG - Rain is coming!

Its getting dark outside in Zug and there is a constant wind, plus a sense of foreboding.

Something wicked this way comes.

Re: ZH/AG - Rain is coming!

Yep, just had to put on the light in the shop as getting very dark and wind is getting up. I have flip flops, blouse and skirt on, no umbrella or jacket and got a big walk home....typical.

Hsiang reporting from Baden:

very gusty! all the trees look like they're bent at an angle. Rain clouds visible in the distance.

I can see what you are going to get... The sky here in Zug is almost black as night. Unbelievable!

Re: ZH/AG - Rain is coming!

It's passed Lausanne by with barely a raindrop.

Nice time to be browsing Swiss Webcams
