April weather continues to be rather odd
The weather this month is throwing up several strange phenomena. Yesterday the country had snow, a sandstorm, a tornado and forest fires are still raging in Ticino.
Some areas had snow flurries down on the plateau yesterday, a small tornado formed over Lake Constance creating a water spout and high winds in Ticino blew sand across the Maggia valley.
During all this –an extended dry spell in the south of the country means the forests are tinder dry.
