Wintertime, Snow, storm and rain

The weather in Switzerland could not be more different. While
villages in higher regions are almost cut off from the rest of the
country due to heavily snow-blocked roads, in other regions a
storm called “Andrea” brought rain and heavy winds.

Up to 110 mph (180 km/h) are massive wind speeds and usually cause heavy damage to nature and structure. However combined with moist air the result is: metres of snow and heavy damage in other villages.

I’ve searched for some pictures to show to you. These are courtesy of 20Minuten / Berner Zeitung (and their respective readers):

In Bern, chances look grim that we’ll get some more snow because weather tends to raise above 10 degrees celsius the upcoming days on the south side of the Alps. That also means that the snow line raises above 3000m and thus a big snow melt will take place probably ending up in some local flooding because of the swelling of smaller runlets.

In Bern however it stays around -4 to +4 degrees celsius until next sunday (source: meteoswiss)
