meteo.ch can't make its mind up

I noticed this the other day and figured it was a fluke, but it's doing it today too.

If you speak German, the weather looks like this:


and if you speak French, it looks like this:


What gives?

The French speakers are more optimistic than the German speakers?

That was my first thought, but now looking at the moonphase it seems that the French one is just perpetually out of date .

Based on those figures, the Swiss Germans have it spot on. The weather is fooking shite in Fribourg and Bern today.

The French version gives the date on the top as 16th December but at the sidfe under the moon it's 26th November. Guess somebody's incapable of matching the pictures with the date.

German version is pretty spot on from where I'm sitting. Weather is pretty sh*te in Neuchatel too.

Re: meteo.ch can't make its mind up

I heard "thunderstorms" on Badischer radio last night. Then today I'm hearing "storm warning -- duck and cover and kiss your ass goodbye". but I'm only just "hearing" this stuff.

I'm also hearing that it's going to snow in Basel.

I can't actually find a decent weather report anywhere. Cartoon charts don't actually help me either. I want to see the satelite images and how the fronts are forming.
