Winter Golf Balls

As winter is fast approaching, it is believed that we should be switching to low compression golf balls. Do you agree? What balls do you recommend? Does this actually make a difference?

My normal ball is the Srixon Z-Star, but as in the winter the greens are soft and the wind effects the ball more I just stock up on AD333s. Do a decent enough job

After a game yesterday the Srixon Trispeeds are about to go in the bag to replace the usual Z Stars.

Srixon Soft Feel for the winter.

This is probably going to sound like a very dim question but why does different weather mean a different ball is better?
