I am going to Switzerland on May 22 until June 4. I will have 4 nights staying in Thun,1 in Murren and 3 in Grindelwald. Then 3 nights in Locarno and then 1 in Zug.
I am looking at the weather forecast, and it seems like every single place I am going to go to is having some kind of absurd monsoon season. Is this true and how is this possible?! Plus snow and ice in Grindelwald. But every single day - for over a month when I look at the long term forecasts - is RAIN. Not even partly sunny and rain, but just RAIN. If it is cloudy and rainy then we will see no views. We wanted to do lots of hiking and look at the mountains and feel the sunshine.
First of all, does anyone know about this crazy rain situation? I'm trying to find news about it - I know if America was having rain for a month it would be in the news. Or are online weather websites completely unreliable for the Alps? Or is this normal? I'm just really baffled and honestly quite upset. :-(
