Spring weather – Is this the last snowfall?


On Friday there was snow in spots all the way to the plains and on Saturday evening it was white here and there. After that, there is no new snow looming at this time. When does it usually snow for the last time?

At the beginning of next week, more precisely the first of March, it is the beginning of the weather season. There is also a lot of sun. However, the weather will remain wintry until Saturday morning and snow showers could fall in parts in the lowlands. Will the snow streak be this light for the last time this year? Statistically not necessarily. On average, the last snow falls only at very low altitudes, as in Geneva at the beginning of February. Otherwise, in the lowlands, it usually snows for the last time in March.

Since the weather is known to be chaotic, it could also be different. After all, 3 out of 10 years it snows in Bern or Zurich in April. In Arosa there was even another snowfall in June. It is only in the middle of summer that it hardly snows. It should be noted that these statistics are purely historical and may not ideally cover the current warmer Swiss climate.
