First summery phase in sight at the weekend!

by MeteoNews AG

Until Thursday, the weather will be quite mixed with mostly westerly high-altitude winds and showers, then from Friday until at least the beginning of next week it will be quite sunny in the area of a ridge of high pressure. Temperatures up to Thursday will be quite seasonable at 13 to 18 degrees or slightly above average, especially on Thursday, and from Friday it will be warm with 20 degrees and much higher. At the weekend and at the beginning of next week, summer temperatures of 25 degrees and a little more can be expected in the north. This puts us in the range of absolute records for the first half of April and possibly not far from absolute April records locally.

An ever earlier spring – good or bad?

One of the mildest winters on record is having an impact on nature: As has often been the case in recent years, nature has woken up very early, which is also reflected in the fact that hay fever symptoms have been on the rise for some time now and many spring flowers are already blooming in gardens and parks. Winters are becoming milder and milder as a result of climate change, which means that nature is waking up earlier and earlier and the growing season is being extended. This has a variety of effects, both positive and negative.

The first half of April was almost 5 degrees too warm!

The first half of April was exceptionally warm, with an excess of almost 5 degrees over the whole of Switzerland! There were also an unusually large number of summer days and even all-time April temperature records in some places. There were big differences in terms of precipitation: in the south it was sometimes far too wet, on the Swiss Plateau on the other hand, it was usually far too dry. The duration of sunshine was roughly within the norm.

With High Peter return of warmth – temporarily...

From Thursday to Sunday, sunny and increasingly warmer weather will set in in the area of influence of high pressure system Peter. At the weekend, it will be 23 to 25 degrees in the north and 26 to 27 degrees in the south, already warm again in early summer. In the coming week, it will be changeable, partly windy and increasingly cooler until the middle of the week, with first a westerly and then a northerly flow in the north. In addition, it will often be wet, especially along the Alps, with increasing northern congestion and the snow line dropping below 1000 meters by the middle of the week. The weather will also be changeable and windy next Monday for Sechseläuten in Zurich. In the south, on the other hand, the weather will be quite sunny and still warm from Tuesday with a northerly foehn.

Summer in April!

After today's rather unsettled Thursday, a ridge of high pressure will provide Switzerland with plenty of sunshine and exceptionally high temperatures for the time of year from tomorrow Friday to Monday. The high pressure current will turn from west to southwest, bringing in warm subtropical air, especially at the weekend and on Monday. Some temperature records are likely to be set for the first half of April, and absolute April records cannot be ruled out locally, especially at high altitudes. On Tuesday, a cold front moving in from the west will bring the exceptionally warm weather phase to an end.

Together with 2019/2020, mildest winter since start of measurements!

The meteorological winter that ended yesterday (December to February) was around 2.7 degrees too mild compared to the long-term average from 1991 to 2020. This makes the winter of 2023/2024, together with the winter of 2019/2020, the mildest since measurements began in 1864. With the exception of February, there was too much precipitation, with December in particular being significantly too wet. Finally, the sun shone less frequently than normal in every winter month, with February in particular being far too cloudy.

Stormy start to November with storm Ciarán in Western Europe

Tomorrow Wednesday, a big storm named Ciarán will form over the Atlantic under rapid strengthening, which will subsequently move over southern England to the North Sea during the night on Thursday and on Thursday, bringing gale-force winds of up to about 150 km/h in parts, especially in southern England and northern France, and here especially in Brittany. Associated with this are also in the western English Channel and on the west coast of France also high waves of over 10 meters in places.
