After months of snow and frosty temperatures, things are set to get a fair bit warmer this weekend before trending cold and rainy again on Monday.

Temperatures of up to 18 degrees are predicted for several parts of Switzerland over the weekend. 

On Friday afternoon rain is predicted for much of the northern part of the country, with temperatures hitting maximums of between 11 and 14 degrees. 

 

 

 

On Saturday, the mercury is expected to climb to 18 across much of the country – including in the major cities. 

Sunday is expected to stay mild. 

Bad news for hay fever victims

Swiss weather agency MeteoNews warns however that the spring-like temperatures are set to cause havoc for allergy sufferers. 

Pollen levels are expected to be high over the weekend – particularly in the north of the country. 

 

 

Winter is coming (again)

Cold air and winds coming from the north and east are expected to start up again on Monday – meaning a return to low temperatures is just around the corner. 

The agency is warning Swiss residents to resist the temptation to put the warm jacket away, with double digit minuses predicted for much of the country from Monday onwards.
