>> We want to go to the top Jungfrau station on one of those days. Is it sensible to buy a ticket in advance of our visit and if so, can we get a flexible ticket so that we can avoid a bad weather day?
As rockoyster mentioned, buying a ticket in advance is not a good idea, as you never know until the day of travel (or the day before) whether there will be any visibility on top.
If you buy a ticket on the Jungfraujoch website, the tickets are non-refundable, non-transferable and can only be used on the day of validity. They have to be printed out.
Third party sellers might issue a voucher, which you would exchange for a ticket on the day of your choice, but that would be of little use if you didn't get an opportunity to use the voucher because visibility was poor every day you were there. Unless there is a substantial financial advantage to getting a voucher in advance, I would simply buy a ticket on the day of travel, or the evening before, at a staffed station in the Jungfrau Region.
You can check the weather forecast and webcam to see what conditions are like before buying a ticket to go up:

It will be pretty busy in July, so an early start might be a good idea.
