differtiate between the weather and climate

 Weather is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.Most weather phenomena occur in the troposphere, just below the stratosphere. Weather refers, generally, to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time. When used without qualification, "weather" is understood to be the weather of Earth.


Climate encompasses the statistics of temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, precipitation, atmospheric particle count and other meteorological elemental measurements in a given region over long periods. Climate can be contrasted to weather, which is the present condition of these elements and their variations over shorter periods.

A region 's climate is generated by the climate system, which has five components: atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, land surface, and biosphere.

 The term weather means the state of atmosphere at a particular place at a particular time.It includes information on weather elements such  as temprature, air pressure, winds, humidity, cloud cover and rainfall. We usually get information about the weather from weather reporters and forecasts published in newspapers or broadcast over radio and television. Weather forecasts are particularly helpful, as they warn us in advance about approaching storms and heavy rains. This enables us to take precautions.

Climate of a place is the average weather of the place. In other words, climate is the regular pattern of weather conditions at a place over a period of time.
