North side of the Alps – summer takes a break

A week ago in Geneva it was up to 38.1 degrees. And then came the hot days. The last week of July brings summer rather than heat and relatively fresh nights in the north.

Many hot days in July 2022

July 2022 brought significantly more days with a maximum temperature of 30 degrees Celsius and higher than the long period average could be expected. It has been 6 to 11 hot days so far in low-lying areas of German-speaking Switzerland. It was even hotter in the Lake Geneva region, in the Rhne valley and on the south side of the Alps: Stabio in southern Ticino is the frontrunner with an incredible 24 warm days.

The last week of July has brought relief to the people suffering from the heat in the north. The maximum temperature will be between 25 and 29 degrees locally, till Saturday the heat will be hot, but it will not be hot now. After that, the temperature trend is again slightly upward: on Sundays and on federal holidays, the heat mark will be again or slightly higher, especially in the Geneva and Basel regions.

Not only this, the maximum temperature is at a lower level. It cools even better at night. Many people find temperatures between 12 and 17 degrees more pleasant than on tropical nights.
