Early September weather

Ill be in lucerne the first 3 days of September and have been checking the weather the past few weeks. Looks like it has been very rainy - wondering if that might continue while we are there or if this time of year is typically a little rainier. I know it does what it does and can't be predicted but just wondering if September is normally a bit nicer.

Also, if it is raining in lucerne, can it be assumed surrounding cities will be raining too? Such as thun, spiez, bern - or could we get away to those with better weather?

The weather difference between Thun, Bern, Lucerne and Zurich is about half an hour. It might be quite different South of the Alps, as in Lugano.

Hi klc948

Weather in the Lucerne area was somewhat exceptional until now this year. We got more heat and more rain than other years. Anyway, periods of bad weather are pretty common in Central Europe and, as you say, weather is not predictable. September is normally a very good time not only for the Lucerne area but also for the Alps. In fact it is my most preferred time of the year.

Did you follow the weather on www.meteoschweiz.admin.ch/web/en ? This is a pretty good place to get correct information. If you would have a smart phone look at the WeatherPro app which is the meteo of different international TV stations. I used it in the U.S. and in different countries in Europe and it was very helpful as it is pretty detailed (depending on where you are looking for weather 2 or 4 hour steps).

I hope this helps
