Exciting counter-current situation: snow as far as the northern Alpine valleys?

Today, Tuesday, a so-called counter-current situation will develop during the course of the day. This will bring a lot of precipitation, especially during the night and tomorrow morning, mainly along the central and eastern Alps and in northern and central Grisons. In the event of heavy precipitation, the effect of the precipitation cooling during the course of the night into tomorrow, Wednesday, may cause it to snow further down than the air mass potentially allows. In the northern Alpine valleys, there may well be a white surprise down to low altitudes. At the same time, rain will fall on the Central Plateau with less precipitation intensity below around 600 to 800 meters, there will be no snow at the lowest altitudes.

A short winter greeting in the middle of the week

After a quiet start to the week, a somewhat more exciting phase will follow in the middle of the week. According to the latest model data, the snow line will drop to around 500 meters in some areas during the night to Wednesday. Along the Alps and in eastern Switzerland, there is likely to be a white awakening at slightly higher altitudes on Wednesday morning. However, an intermediate high will put an end to the brief intermezzo on Thursday.

Extremely mild first half of February!

The first half of February was extremely mild, with an excess of between around 3 and 7 degrees and an average of more than 5 degrees across Switzerland. In the second half, the excess dropped slightly, but it was clearly the mildest February for the whole of Switzerland since measurements began in 1864! Temperatures were quite widely higher than the average for March! There was sometimes too little precipitation in the north, but clearly too much in the south. Finally, the sun shone about as often as normal on the Swiss Plateau, but less frequently in other areas.

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.

Unspectacular week in the north, greater amounts of precipitation in the south

The last week of February and, from a meteorological point of view, the last week of winter is not very spectacular in the north. Clouds often dominate, but there is little precipitation. The situation is different in the south. After a wet start to the week, the weather only calms down briefly in the middle of the week and the next congestion situation is already on the horizon for the coming weekend.

No stable weather in sight

Stable weather is not in sight in the coming days, with the most sunshine likely on Saturday. It will also be occasionally wet, especially with a warm front today (Thursday) and a cold front tomorrow night (Friday) and tomorrow morning in the south and Graubünden. There will also be intermittent precipitation, especially in the south and west on Monday. Maximum temperatures will mostly be in the single digits in the north from tomorrow, but at just under 10 degrees it won't be very cool and will still be slightly above normal for the time of year.

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.
