Hello everyone,

We are traveling to Wengen next week and have been checking the weather channel for the past several weeks and it looks like it is raining there every day. Is this normal for this time of year? We are there only for two and half days and we really hope to see the area.

Thank you!

You might find this more encouraging than the "weather channel".

In Switzerland the weather will be what it will be and you may not know until 24 to 48 hours before what it is going to do.

Late May and early June last year we had over 3 weeks with no rain and hardly a cloud in the sky the entire time.

Good luck.

Thank you rockoyster! It is a bit more encouraging! I guess we will have to wait and be surprised! :)

A friend of mine in Grindelwald once told me it never rains there, but every now and then they have to wash the mountains.

We will be in Murren for 4 nights beginning the 15th of June. I have also been following the forecast which at first glance looks dreadful. However, i also check the webcams throughout the day and see plenty of blue skies, even on days that had rainy forecasts. It will be what it will be, but that has given me some comfort:) Safe travels!

We arrived in Wengen Wednesday evening and the weather hasn’t been bad. It rained one night and there was a shower this afternoon but now the sun is shining again. It hasn’t stopped us from doing what we planned to do

Thanks for these posts. We arrive in Wengen in 1 1/2 weeks and I too have been watching the weather for the past month with dismay. I'm glad to hear there is sun as well as the clouds and rain. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜

Hi Lois-

I just got back from two weeks in Switzerland with rain in the forecast every day. I had sunny weather every day; in the late afternoon or early evening I had rain or showers for a half an hour or so on about half the days.

Only one day ( the 30th) when I was in Bern , did the storm come through at about 3PM. Went away in 15 minutes.

You are looking at the wrong weather site.

This one, although not perfect, is a lot better than the Weather Channel:

www.meteocentrale.ch/e n/europe/weather-switzerland/map/108/

Also- read this page especially about the weather:
