Climate in Switzerland and weather forecast - best seasons for visit
The climate of Switzerland is moderately continental. The peculiarity of the country is its landscape. More than 62 percent of the territory is occupied by mountains, so in some parts of Switzerland winter does not end even in summer. The climatic characteristics of the territory directly depend on its height above sea level. The mountains are a natural barrier to the cold Arctic air masses. The country is characterized by cold winters in mountainous areas, and hot summers in plains. Every year, a lot of precipitation falls in Switzerland. Almost throughout the whole territory, the average temperature in winter is about 1 degree below zero, and in summer, the temperature rises up to 25 degrees Celsius. At night, the temperature can drop to +10C. In the south of the country, the weather remains unchanged at any time of the year. The largest amount of precipitation a year falls in the southern part of Switzerland.
