Nothing at all yet in Neuchâtel - getting gradually darker but no wind, rain or storms.
No sooner did I post that than it started raining and the wind gusting...

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

Is "4" good?

I think it's time for me to cycle home now the hail has finished before the next storm hits! Then I can admire it all from my balcony.

Great, the third hailstorm this week here. Our apples are starting to look slightly beat up.

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

Hailstorm over. Warmed up briefly but now the winds have come.

Waiting for the heavy rain storm to come!

I was about to ask where 'near zurich' you are, I see the dark and darker clouds rolling in at quite the pace--I still have to finish my beer, and go home to get ready for some clubbing----I'm guessing an umbrella would be useful to stay dry, but useless because of the wind :P

...mind you, it's quite nice to be warned so that I can move the big window boxes down and take my cacti from their perilous balancing place... and someone I know who lives in a really windy place can make sure that their patio table is lashed down with avalanche cords and that the largest stones are in place on top of the sandpit cover.
Yes love to have open windows, but always make sure they are closed when out. When in watch the wind and quick to start closing, learnt the hard way how quick the wind will take the window and smash the glass.

Dark clouds, wind in Thurgau, any time now for the rain to start.

Please no car damaging hailstones

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

What?! Is Riehen in a different country as Basel? Do we have some sort of invisible mountain that breaks up the storm before it comes over to us? No hail, small winds and bouts of small bursts of rain....Now Nothing

...and I just took up for you mother nature...

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

Absolutely nothing here, apart from the fact that the temperature has gone from 30 to 15 over the last four hours. It's just a chilly, cloudy evening with showers. Very boring.

Rain radar (ETH) shows it must be pissisting down around Thalwil right now. It's coming up from the south so we should see something in the next half an hour...


EDIT: Are we being terribly British talking about the weather..?

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

It's gone very chilly and windy out here - and the clouds rolling down the mountain toward us were something to see! - but only a few spits of rain so far.

Neighbors are all frantically trying to cram more cars and bikes into their garages though, so I reckon they are expecting hail later on. Oh, and the storm lights (the 'bad' ones, fast blink) are up on the Walensee.
