Comparative Temperatures

12 May

Today I planned a long hike with my dog. The sky was clear at 7 A.M., but we’ve had a lot of rain lately. I checked The Weather Channel online. The forecast for St. Louis was


Sunny, High of 62, low of 41. Fantastic hiking weather.
Then I thought, I wonder what the weather is like in the places I will be traveling this summer. I checked that out too.
I’m landing in Zurich, Switzerland.
Cloudy, High of 56, low of 41. 20% chance of rain. A little cooler than here.
I’ll be a tourist in Luzern, Switzerland.
Cloudy, High of 54, low of 39. 80% chance of rain. Cooler and wetter.
I’ll be visiting my cousin in Konstanz, Germany.
Cloudy, High of 57, low of 39. 20% chance of rain. Cooler than here.
I will visit my college friends in Munich, Germany.
Cloudy, High of 59, low of 40, 10% chance of rain. Slightly cooler than here.
My Dolomite hike will start in Bolzano, Italy.
Partly cloudy, High of 75, low of 43, 40% chance of rain. Warmer than here, but dropping at night.
Ortisei, Italy, our first two nights in the Dolomites.
Mostly cloudy, High of 59, low of 36, 20% chance of rain. Cooler than here, cooler than Bolzano.
Colfosco, Italy, our second two nights in the Dolomites.
Mostly cloudy, High of 43, low of 33, 20% chance of rain. Winter’s back!
Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, our last two nights in the Dolomites.
Mostly cloudy, High of 59, low of 34, 20% chance of rain. Cooler than here.
I will visit my host family (1973) in Salzburg, Austria.
Light rain, High of 60, low of 38, 70% chance of rain. It always rains in Salzburg.
Assessment: The temperatures are not that different from those in my hometown, except in the mountains where it is substantially cooler. (All temperatures noted are in degrees Fahrenheit).

      Do you live in or near the Dolomites?

        Just below them…I live in the Trentino part of Alto Adige, near lake Garda…You’re going to love the Dolomites!

      Checked out your blog again. You live in the area around Trentino? Your photos really show off the beauty of the landscape.

        The landscape around here is really beautiful one of the reasons we moved up north. I’d say that the landscape is why some of my photos are so beautiful… 😉
