best swiss weather forecast source?

The BBC is saying Snow for Zürich Friday and Saturday
http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/5day.shtml?world=0139

I'd like to get a better weather forecast though, and swissinfo's seems pretty lacking...where do you get your internet weather from?

The window. Better quality than most forecasts

Meteoschweiz and meteonews seem to be behind a lot of Swiss forecasts...

Re: weather

I find this link from the weather centre at the airport to be the more accurate of the bbc feeds:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/5day.shtml?world=5113

Or there's meteoschweiz:

Or if its snow you're after:

Re: weather

I get mine from Yahoo, but it's pretty sunny right now -- its forecast said light rain today. It predicts rain or snow for Saturday.

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

I usually turn to my "ex weather girl" girlfriend and ask her.

I guess the rest of you just sol

(Incidentally, because she is both a woman and German her forecast is always right. Even when she is wrong.)

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

I find the reliability of any Swiss weather forecast, including those for aviation, to be very limited. Therefore I rely on a peek out the window to guide me in the mornings.

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

Allgemeine Lage: Zwischen dem Hoch mit Kern über dem Atlantik und dem Tief mit Zentrum über Südskandinavien führt eine starke nordwestliche Höhenströmung feuchte und kalte Polarluft vom Nordatlantik gegen die Alpen. In der zweiten Nachthälfte auf Freitag erreicht eine aktive Kaltfront die Alpennordseite. Auf ihrer Rückseite frischt der Nordwestwind stark auf und die Schneefallgrenze sinkt bis in tiefe Lagen ab.

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

I use wetter.com and find it to be the most precise one for Switzerland.

Support also the SFDRS wetter. It's a bit like asking a brit, who will say BBC Weather, the same can be said of SFDRS. Always uptodate and used on all the DRS radio and SF TV channels and not often wrong.

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

I have two contributions from my weather-minded other half:

The ETH radar in Zurich and

Meteoblue

Me? I just look out the window like tomcat.

Edit: if above meteoblue link doesn't work, try www.meteoblue.com

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

I use weatherpixie to get the current weather situation...

http://www.weatherpixie.com/index.ph...and&place=LSZH

The URL above is for Zurich-Kloten, but you can change it on the webpage to anywhere in the world where they take WAFS weather observations...

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

I always use accuweather.com. Usually find it quite good, so much better than the BBC's weather forecast...

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

For the most detailed forecasts I've ever seen, try meteocentrale.ch. If you click on one of the red dots on their map of the country, you can get forecasts for that location, and for some locations (e.g., see this one for Bullet in the Jura) you get forecast of temperature, precipitation, sunlight, wind, etc for every hour for the next few days! Might not be any more accurate, but it is very detailed.

Re: best swiss weather forecast source?

Hi. Sorry if this is already posted, but I didn't check each link that was posted for the corresponding website.

I use www.landi.ch

It's basically the weather forecast the farmers use. It's usually pretty dead-on, hour by hour.
