Topic - Weather advice for a newby

Littleslip - on 27 Dec 2012
I've been indoor sport climbing for around three months now and making the jump into outdoor mountaineering. Nothing major just good winter climbs.

I'm trying to get my head around the weather reports but I'm not sure what I'm looking at. Obviously I know to avoid things like heavy rain/ thunderstorms etc, but it's things like gauging snow conditions from reports that I'm a bit confused by. This might found like a bit of a stupid question really but I'm never afraid of asking really!

For example weather reports for fort William predict heavy rain tomorrow but a fair weekend, some snow fall on sat night, heavy winds throughout. Is it worth a trip up or just wait?

I just don't want to make the trip up there and not be able to climb or enjoy the climbing due to bad conditions.

Thanks :)
