No one can predict the weather for a given week komal. You can look at average weather easily enough online.

It also depends on what you plan to do with your time. If you visit Jungfraujoch for example, it will definitely be cold up there. You will be in snow, so what would you think you should pack in terms of clothing?

I do suggest you think in terms of layers. A t-shirt, long sleeve shirt and light fleece under a rainjacket for example would cover pretty much any kind of weather you are likely to encounter.

besides layers I think shoes are vital. You will need a couple of pairs of well-broken in walking shoes that are non-skid for snow and won;t be bothered by rain.

No need for any heavy winter clothes - 3 or 4 lighter layers will be fine for Jungfrau unless you plan on takin art in the ski school.

This year is much colder than average, also much more rain.

Remember to bring some comfortable thick socks too. Always a comfort item on cold, rainy or a windy day when you are out and about.
Make sure your shoes fit well with these socks as you will be walking around a lot.
Good lip moisturizer is also very helpful.
