yes, actually it is colder now, even in lower altitudes than it is usually. I recommend MeteoSwiss, you can download the app and it is great. I always use that. (Learn more about the weather here: www.myswissalps.com/weather)
-3 is OK if you have proper winter clothes, otherwise, it is very very cold.Where are you coming from? How is the weather overthere now?
I am not sure how are the flowers at Schynige Platte right now, but I've been around 1800-2000 m last weekend (near the Aletsch Glacier), and there was still some kind of flowers. Plus, the autumn colors, so it was just wonderful!
I recommend the following: on your first mountain top do not plan any hiking activities, just check how you like the weather and the temperature. Then on your next mountain top, you can already be prepared. At least I would do this.
And make sure to take layered clothing. And sun cream.
