Heavy snow around Graubünden closed roads and train lines. Up to 70cm fell around Arosa, Chur, Davos and St Moritz.

There was also snow at Zurich airport, but not enough to affect flights.

Although the snow line is likely to rise over the next few days, forecasters say there will be heavy rain – especially in canton Ticino. The canton could get a month’s rain in the next few days.
