In some of the other forums here, I see people talking about GFS, sounding, and other technical terms to predict good potential for stormy weather.

The technical terms I will eventually get the hang of (dictionaries and the glossary here are great), but what I would really like to know is how do you guys put that altogther to make a prediction? Where do you learn this stuff? I don't have time (or the money) to do a degree in meteorology (although would love to do one just for the fun of it), so in the mean time, how does an enthusiastic amateur learn about the technical side of meteorology?
