Weather Vs. Climate

Define Weather

Weather refers to short-run atmospheric conditions involving heat, moisture, and their motion for a given time and a specific area. It changes quickly, maybe within a day or a week.

Define Climate

Climate refers to the aggregation (totality) of atmospheric conditions involving heat, moisture, and their motions over a long period of time and for a larger area. It changes imperceptively and maybe noted after 50 years or more.

“Climate is what you expect, weather is what you get.”

– Mark Twain
Climate attracts the people to an areas and it is the weather that makes them leave.

The middle latitude areas of the globe experience maximum variability of weather conditions of the world. As a result of it, it is believed that the world ‘temperature’ used by greeks is a misnomer.
