In Zurich (+around) where it was halfway raining at about 7pm tonight.

The prospect of some milder weather with the snowfall limit going up to 700mtres, and then a new colder "front" approaching will have lots of water freezing on the roads, which means good business for the car-repair business sector

Thank you Wollie - some of us are worried sick about loved ones and grand-children traveling to CH to be with us. Feel much better now

Advise them to use public transport unless they want to help the local car-industry and do not forget, realism saves lives

Re: It's snowing!

We've had many car accidents and injuries due to icy sidewalks in the area and it's still snowing. Even I, in spite of being cautious, slipped and fell on my lovely green-leafed derriere. No fear, it's still in one piece and as soon as the blue bruises disappear, I'll be back to being my own lucky-charm self again.

Despite the disadvantages of snow, most people are very relieved it's here.

Isn't it supposed to be two....pieces... ?

PS: Love the snow. Was waiting for it to get here. Hope it stays a while and people are a bit more careful.

It will be above 1°C Thursday to Saturday, but most likely below 0° on Sunday and Monday with the snow returning

Re: It's snowing!

Martin Horat and I got together last night and here's what he said:



Verreckte Chaib... Das bruucht Köpfchen.

Have you smelled your snow today?

Re: It's snowing!

What a bummer. Got 15 cm or more of snow from Sunday to Wednesday. Went to a Brocki yesterday and bought a great sled for my daughter. She was so excited, she woke up this morning and said "Daddy, let's go sledding." I had to then inform her that since winter only lasts 4 days here, we could not go because the rain and the 8 degree temperatures had wiped away almost all the snow. Her response.. "Daddy, I thought Switzerland was supposed to be cold and snowy?" "I thought so too" I guess I have been Switzerlanded by the weather here.

It's snowing and the roads are very dangerous. Be careful out there!

Re: It's snowing!

Only a light snowfall here, which has now disappeared.
I'm still thanking my lucky stars that we had no snow in the UK over Christmas, it was a balmy 12 degrees when our plane touched down. The only downside was all the bare orange flesh on show in the shopping centres .

I've stopped counting. Snowing again for pretty much all of today and forecast to continue into tomorrow... although it may be rain at village level (Engelberg, 1050m). I'm hoping the forecast is wrong, at least on the temperature front.

Re: It's snowing!

Can anyone tell me of a website or other source where I can get total seasonal or annual snowfall information, preferably in comparison with "normal" (or at least previous years)? And preferably by region (e.g., canton)? So, what I'm looking for is something like how many meters of snow have fallen so far this year vs. normal for this time of year...
