>> Does cloudy means foggy? I'm wondering if cloudy would represent something like your pictures in Titlis.
Yes, those clouds from above were fog at "ground level". A few more pictures attached showing the foggy conditions at the beginning of the ascent to Titlis from Engelberg that day. On the same day at the top of Pilatus, visibility at the top was absolutely zero.
>> If the forecast says snow, ice and rain for the day, usually for how long would it last? Would going out very early in the morning be a good idea?
It could last all day, especially in December, but you never can tell. You might get lucky.
>> I'll take whatever chance I have since we will be there. Got to put the Swiss Pass to good use since we have bought them.
If you want to do a mountain trip regardless of the weather, you could pick the ones that are free with your Swiss Travel Pass, i.e. Rigi and Pilatus. Going up will still be an interesting experience.
