Weather Forecasting

So my parents came to visit and they were very excited about Switzerland. They wanted to see Mürren quite badly. Each day (they got here Sunday night) the weather forecast for Interlaken was partly cloudy. Each day we got up, it was cloudy and rainy. Even today as I look at Interlakens forecast showing "sunny", it is clouded over. Three different forecasts showing the same thing, all far from reality. Is this the standard deal, or can you ever count on the forecast in the Berner Oberland?

In short, probably not. The weather seems to change quite rapidly in Switzerland, with the mountains and all surrounding it. I guess that's why it is more difficult to predict. (any meteorologists out there, who can explain it better?)
Another thing I noticed is that on the meteosuisse website, the forecast tends to change if you change language. As if the different parts of the country have different forecasters.
Most of the time you are better off doing what you and your parents already did, look out the window in the morning!
