Climate is defined as the weather patterns over time in a specific area. We often confuse weather and climate. They are definitely related, but weather is something that changes day to day, even from morning to afternoon. Climate takes into account the weather, but it is an expectation of what the weather will be like based on years of data. So…you may live somewhere with cool winters and warm summers like we do. That is the climate. However, during the winter, you may wake up to warmer than expected temperatures. That’s the weather for that particular day. Overall, it doesn’t change the fact that the climate you live in has generally cool winters.
