Topic - How to read & understand weather forecasts for winter climbing

JonmapDL - on 30 Dec 2012
Given all the rightful intrigue and chat around 'conditions', and the obvious importance of understanding these... am depressingly aware of the shallowness of my understanding here. Thought it'd be helpful for all if we shared some wisdom on wat winter climbers should be looking out for in forecasts before we set off... both in terms of safety and enjoyment.

most basically, have found these websites helpful:
avalanche info here: http://www.sais.gov.uk/ (Also recommend the MCofS/glenmore avalanche awareness course)
General mountain weather forecasts here: http://www.mwis.org.uk/
Here's a helpful UKC logbook for recent ascents and comments: http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/winter.html

Any tips on what to look out for in these?
