Switzerland will have a mild start to winter and above-average temperatures could last even into February, forecasters told the NZZ am Sonntag newspaper, expressing hope that energy supplies will not be excessive.

The seasonal forecast from October to December indicates that average temperatures across Switzerland will be above the average for the past 30 years, Stefan Bader of the weather service MeteoSchweiz told the newspaper.

Last month, the Swiss government launched a voluntary campaign urging consumers and businesses to save energy as gas and electricity shortages will arise this winter, which could lead to rationing of consumption in a worst-case scenario.

Long-term models from the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) are also encouraging for February, when the danger of power shortages is most acute, NZZ reports.
