    I’ve done the Pyrenees in the autumn before and had similar weather but equally never considered the high Alps as I thought particularly the main passes would be all closed and it would be too cold.

    So do you think you just got lucky or is this the norm around this time ? I found the Pyrenees in mid to late September cold before midday.

    I think average temperatures were a little above the norm but as I mentioned earlier the locals were saying that the weather generally can be more settled in October as things start to cool down before winter proper arrives.

    I live near to Interlaken and can say that it's been a fantastic summer.
    We had no thunderstorms or high winds that we often get late in the day.
    And we still got good weather.
    I would say that June, September and October are the best times to visit.
    Yes it can be cold anything from 3 to 33 degrees with snow or beautiful sunshine but that is the Alps.

    You live in a lovely part of the world - I like your area!
    I'm going to visit it again next year (avoiding the toll roads).
    "I must be traveling on now 'cause there's too many places I've got to see.
