Weather in Zermatt

Zermatt is generally a sunny place. However sitting on the mainline ridge mean means we are surrounded by some big mountains. There are 38, 4000m peaks directly around us, this means the weather in Zermatt can be wild and changeable.

It’s always good to be up to date on the forecast and be prepared for anything, whatever the time of year. Here are the forecasts we look at before we head up into the mountains, summer or winter to make sure we are preparead and ready for the elements.

General forecast

The Zermatt weather can change rapidly here so it’s worth keeping an eye on it through the week. 2 – 3 days out it should be relatively accurate but the forecast for the end of the week can be very different by the time you get there.

The forecasts can differ as well so it’s worth looking at a few different ones.

Specific forecast

The specific forecast for Klein Matterhorn is really useful if you are heading up that side of the ski area or over to Italy. 

It shows the next four days and details of the forecast for that location. This is a great place to keep an eye on the temperature and the windspeed in particular. It’s high up there and the weather can be really different to over at Sunnegga.

If you see it’s going to be really windy (check the scale on the side as it changes depending on the range) then you know it’s a good day to avoid trying to get to Cervinia.

There is one for Klein Matterhorn and one for Gornergrat. As two of the highest points these will give you a reall good indication of the current weather in Zermatt.
