Alpine light show for earlybirds

Dawn over the Rhone River valley and the peaks where cantons Valais, Uri, and Ticino meet Italy: a magnificent 5 March light show from 06:50 to 07:03 that dwindled down, two hours later, to a gray day with wild, warming foehn winds battering the valley.

Weather for today

Sion in Valais is expected to reach 18C today and Chur in canton Graubuenden 15C, with sunshine, but the rest of the country is starting out with more cloud cover than sunshine and highs will range from 8-12C.
