Switzerland is divided by the Alps into two distinct areas with quite different climates. To the north of the Alps, the climate is warmer and can be described as continental while the area south of the Alps enjoys a Mediterranean climate.
In general, the highest temperatures are during July and August, when temperatures reach 30°C and the weather is hot and dry. Spring, which falls from March to May, is cooler and the wettest time of year to make a visit. During this period the weather is very changeable so be prepared for any possibility including rain, sun and occasional snow.
The coldest time of year is January through February when temperatures dip down below 0°C. If you are visiting Switzerland for the snow then wait until at least October, when areas above 1000m will receive their first snow fall.
Be aware that at altitude temperatures are considerably cooler and weather conditions a lot more severe than in the valleys.
