What’s the difference between weather and climate???
Weather is what is currently going on. When somebody says, “It is 32 degrees…” they are talking about weather .
Climate is weather, in a sense, but as an average. When somebody says, “The average temperature in July for the last 15 years is 80 degrees…” they are talking about the climate . Climate varies from place to place.
