Winds of up to 120 km/hour were also recorded over the Jura, as well as on Bantiger and Uetliberg, NZZ reports. The weekend saw fierce winds rage all over the country.
Gisela also brought snow to most of the Alps, with 18 centimetres of fresh fall recorded in Arosa, 13cm in the Valais and Andermatt, and 15cm in the Urner Alps.
The heavy snowfall has led the Institute of Snow and Avalanche Research in Davos to issue avalanche warnings for the early part of the week.
