Re: Weather in Switzerland

Hello All,

I am looking to find out what parts of Switzerland have the least amount of cloud cover on average. I love it when it's clear outside, beautiful blue sky and at night time when you can gaze at the stars. I have seen many pictures of Switzerland, the German speaking areas, the Italian and French and more then 50% of the pictures I have seen of the German and French areas they are cloudy and dim where as the Italian area is has mostly clear blue skies.

What are your thoughts? Any particular area of the French or German speaking areas that have less cloud cover then others. Maybe the pictures I looked at are not telling the overall truth? On average how many clear blue sky days are there in Zurich (out of the 365 days)

Thanks
I read somewhere that Basel gets the weather funneled up the Rhone valley from the Mediterranean, which attributes to our perfect weather.

Just been out for a run and the heavens opened! I'm wet! Hopefully the summer will return next week.

Re: Weather in Switzerland

September and even October usually seem to be the best months here. So if we've had summer and they want to bring on September next week, that's fine by me.

That's called "sweat", dear.

What we've had so far has been an exceptional summer. Certainly the best that I can remember over the past 5 years.

To be honest the summer months are normally by far the wettest months.

http://www.weather-and-climate.com/a...ch,Switzerland

I've looked at several charts and all say pretty much the same thing. It rains in summer almost twice as much as in the winter. What we have at the moment is pretty much the norm for northern Switzerland.
The best one of the past 3 decades was in 2003, with June, July and August having had only minimal rain. And there were quite good ones around 1960 . 2006 was good in May, June and July, but August and September were cold and rainy.

The present rainy weather is good for 1st August as there will be no restrictions against the fireworks
