Description

In addition to its automatic precipitation measurements, MeteoSwiss also operates a manual precipitation monitoring network. Measurements are taken here once a day and transmitted to MeteoSwiss via SMS. The network comprises over 270 locations (230 stations measure rainfall and snowfall, and 40 stations measure snowfall only). Due to their long-series measurements, they are of great climatological significance. In mountainous areas that are difficult to access, around 60 totalisers are used which record the volume of precipitation for an entire year.
