For over 130 years, MeteoSwiss, the Swiss national weather and climate service, has contributed to our country’s safety and prosperity. The general public, industry and science all profit from the range of services provided by our dedicated team of 360 employees in Zurich, Geneva, Locarno, Payerne and Arosa.

On behalf of the Federal Government, MeteoSwiss performs the duties set out in the Federal Act on Meteorology and Climatology. We operate the national surface and radar measurement network and collect, manage and analyse weather and climate data. We create forecasts, inform, warn and advise, get involved in research and develop tailor-made products and services.

MeteoSwiss is an institution with a passion for innovation. We consider ourselves to be a modern, benefit-driven service provider who adapts to the requirements of industry and society. To this end we work hand in hand with our customers and research partners in Switzerland and abroad.

Our aim is to provide first-class weather and climate services for the Swiss public and the international community, now and in the future.
