By now I've been visiting Switzerland during all seasons. The charms of being there during late summer/early fall are indeed the chance of nice weather (however: nobody can tell you anything for sure!) and the fact that high season is over and it will be very much less crowded, which my wife and I consider a blessing. Maybe September is just a bit early fot the beautiful fall colours. On the other hand: I've spent the months of July and August in Switzerland without any drop of rain. So well, there you go...
This year there has been snow in September up to an altitude of (I guess) 1700 m. But at this very moment the weather there is very nice. This means nothing for 2012 of course!
You don't ask about favourite areas in Switzerland, but if I may: the Bernese Oberland is our all-time number one, just a little bit higher rated than Graubünden. But we love Wallis very much as well. This does'nt make it much easier for you, does it? ;-)
I hope this helps you to decide when and where to visit this beautiful country,
