What is the difference between weather and climate?


Though people tend to use the words “weather” and “climate” interchangeably, it has an apparent difference between them. Weather pertains to short-term atmospheric conditions of a region. It varies over minutes, hours and days in different places across the world. The changes in the weather condition can be perceived very frequently. The branch of science that studies weather is called “Meteorology” and the Meteorological Department releases Weather forecasting reports.

Whereas climate is average statistical weather information of a particular place over a long period, say 30 years. The climate changes take place over a period of a long time. The branch of science that studies climate is called “Climatology”.
