National Weather and Climate Service

Switzerland’s national weather and climate service, MeteoSwiss, has been playing an important role in our country’s safety and prosperity for almost 160 years. The general public, industry and science all benefit from the range of services provided by our committed and motivated team of 390 or so employees in Zurich, Geneva, Payerne and Locarno.

On behalf of the Federal Government, MeteoSwiss performs the activities set out in the Federal Act on Meteorology and Climatology. We operate the national surface and radar measurement network, and we collect, manage and analyse weather and climate data. We produce forecasts, and issue information, warnings and advice. We are also engaged in researching and developing tailor-made products and services.
