Sea level pressure and 850hPa temperatures are the two main charts you see posted on here, usually from Meteociel. If you read up on those you'll have a decent idea of what's going on.
Simplest things to know is that air goes clockwise around high pressure and anti clockwise around low pressure and the closer together the isobars are, the stronger the wind. Those facts alone can give you a pretty good understanding of reading pressure charts. The colours show thickness which you can read up on
Here's a very rough view of todays setup which has strong low pressure over Iceland and strong high pressure over the Azores which are driving strong south westerly winds over us
Combine that with the 850hPa temp chart to get an idea of airmass temperatures and the precipitation charts for rainfall and it'll give you enough info to be able to make your own basic forecast

Hi guys I am really interested in people’s interest when looking at model watching . I am myself , haven’t really an idea how to read them only knowing some small bits and blobs. Could anyone tell me in where I can learn online . I’d appreciate your feedback thank you
