Meteo Swiss has warned of low temperatures, particularly in the three lakes region of Switzerland. The overnight low last night was -7 degrees in La Chaux-de-Fonds. While these temperatures are not extremely low, winds of over 100km/h in some places making them feel much colder than they are.
This temperature drop is due to a cold weather phenomenon know as “La Bise”, a cold wind which blows past Geneva continuing eastward. In 2012, “La Bise” spectacularly froze parts of the Lake Geneva region. The photo below was taken in Versoix on 6 February 2012.
