more Info

infoThe Inner Schwyzer meteorologists – also known as Muotathaler Wetterfrösche (literally: "Weathermen") are a group of lay meteorologists from the Inner Schwyz region of Central Switzerland. Twice a year, they present their very entertaining weather forecast findings at the Meteorological Club Inner Schwyz get together. The agrarian oriented "Wetter Schmoecker" (literally: "Weather Sniffers") base their forecasts on observing the great outdoors. Each individual forecast is a secret. The "Wetter Schmoecker" whose half year forecast comes closest to the actual weather conditions, receives a wooden sculpture as a trophy. The 6 active "Wetter Schmoecker" are:

Kari Hediger, Kuessnacht, SZ
Alois Holdener ("Fire Cone"), Urmiberg Seewen, SZ
Martin Holdener ("Moult"), Haggen, SZ
Martin Horat ("Weather Missionary"), Rothenthurm, SZ
Karl Reichmuth ("Ibex Hunter"), Haggen, SZ
Peter Suter („Sand Blaster"), Ried-Muotathal, SZ

The Muotathal „Wetter Schmoecker" rose to fame in Switzerland thanks to a 2010 documentary by Thomas Horat.
