7.41 degrees. That’s how warm it was in Switzerland on average in 2022. That’s a record – and by a lot. The hottest year so far, 2018, has been surpassed by around 0.5 degrees. The new year has barely begun when temperature records tumble again: for the first time since measurements began, more than 20 degrees were measured on the north side of the Alps in January.

A look at the measurement data reveals a clear trend: It’s getting warmer and warmer. After 2010, Switzerland has experienced the seven hottest years since measurements began. The consequences were noticeable last year: Europe recorded over 20,000 deaths and financial losses of around 10 billion francs due to the heat wave.
