On our recent trip the weather reports were only right part of the time. We were lucky enough to be renting accommodation and our landlady and she was an oracle when it came to local weather. On one day she suggested we reverse our plans and take our hike from Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg in the afternoon since she guaranteed the weather would clear up despite what the forecast had said the night before. She was right; we had a glorious walk in the sunshine with billowing clouds. Folks who had set out on the morning are probably still drying out.
I guess what I really am saying is ... make friends with some local people and get their opinion. We found it better than any weather forecast!
