How to Plan for Changeable Weather During Your Travel?

Tip 1:

Pack layers. If you have plenty of layers, you can manage most changes in weather. If it is the summer, ensure you have a waterproof raincoat and a sun hat in your bag - the weather can change that much during the day. Summer evenings can be very hot, or slightly chilly in the mountains so bring a sweater or a light jacket. If you plan to spend time at very high altitudes in the summer, it's good to have a woolly hat and gloves. All these things scrunch up small in a day pack and you'll be glad to have them.

Tip 2: Be flexible in your planning. There's a good chance you will be disappointed if you rigidly stick to a day 1: do x, day 2: do y, type plan. If it's pouring with rain, unless you are pretty hardcore, you probably won't want to go hiking or to a mountain top. Have some plan b's, and enjoy them. There are tons of museums, galleries, cafes, shops, factory tours, and thermal baths waiting for you. These can be just as fun.

Tip 3: If you're not sure what to do, ask the staff at your accommodation what they would advise, or visit the local tourist office. If local advice suggests that the weather will clear up in the afternoon, switch your plans around if necessary. If it seems like early morning is going to be the best time, get up and get going.

Tip 4: Try not to pin too much of your expectations on any one specific aspect of your holiday, just in case you end up doing something else, or in case you can't get the "perfect" photo you have in your mind. See this as an opportunity to be surprised by Switzerland - maybe for example, the Matterhorn was hiding from you in the clouds, but would you have traded the time you spent lying in a thermal bath with the rain gently pitter pattering on your head as the clouds swirl and dance above you?
