Zurich has a temperate climate that is affected by its inland location and proximity to Lake Zurich. Additionally, its nearness to the northern hills like the Kaferberg and the Gubrist also makes its weather quite temperate. Atlantic breezes that are characterized by humidity also affect the city's temperature.
Contrary to what many people may believe, the weather experienced in Zurich is mild given its geographical position. It is only on rare instances that the city goes through seasonal weather extremes.
January is considered to be an ideal time to visit by those tourists who enjoy winter, as it is the coldest month of the year. In January, the temperature stays somewhere around 2° C, with only slight changes at night. With the arrival of March, the weather begins to change with temperature reaching 8° C.
