Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

The hailstones were mildly diverting, but in Basel I think it's fair to say that armageddon has been somewhat underwhelming.

Or at least, no different to a perfect summer's day weather in the Pennines.

Me too. Not so much as a light breeze in 8001. Radar lies!

It's coming: if you're in Pfaffikon SZ, you'll get the best of it at dawn tomorrow. If you're in Pfaffikon ZH, you'll get it a few minutes later.

Down this end, yes, apparently.

It's just windy and a bit rainy at the moment, though.

I feel that this thread has mislead me. Are we blaming "Swiss news via The Local" for the insanity?

Oooh... here it comes! The rain has just picked up suddenly. If it takes six hours to build up, it should be a good 'un!

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

4am I was awake with Junior and there was maybe 40 minutes of occasional loud thunder and rain but certainly nothing I would say would put anyone in 'great danger'

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

So far, the storm's bark has been worse than its bite.

Hope it stays that way.

Re: Switzerland braces for fresh storms

NICE.

Reminds me of home.
Very normal in JHB South Africa to get these hectic electric thunderstorms every evening in summer.
I just loves it.
