“The music first played in the Alps and in the south,” wrote Meteo-Switzerland and the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology on Friday. The first showers developed shortly after noon in the western Bernese Oberland, a short time later thunderstorms discharged from the eastern Bernese Oberland to the Gotthard area.

Thereupon a strong line of gusts and thunderstorms formed, which stretched from the Monte Rosa area over the Nufenen Pass to the Urner and Glarnerland. This was associated with heavy downpours, hail and gusts of wind. The canton of Neuchâtel issued a storm warning of red in the evening.

In the eastern Alps gusts of around 100 kilometers per hour were measured on the peaks, but also in the Alpine valleys 40 to 80 kilometers per hour with maximum values ​​in Göschenen of 83 or in Davos of 107 kilometers per hour. The line of thunderstorms then gradually withdrew to the east, weakening.

However, further showers and thunderstorms can be expected in the evening and at night, Meteo-Swiss writes.
