WEATHER describes conditions in the atmosphere at any time or short period of time. Weather conditions can change suddenly. Today may be warm and sunny, tomorrow may be cool and cloudy. Weather conditions include rain, snow, sleet, hail, fog, mist, sunshine, wind, temperature and thunderstorms. 

CLIMATE describes surface and atmospheric conditions over a longer time period or over a large geographical area. The climate of an area is concerned with the AVERAGE weather conditions which are taken over a year or more. Climate changes slowly, usually over decades, centuries and thousands of years. The Earth has many climate regions; Britain is in the Temperate Climate Belt, with winters that are not too cold and summers that are not too hot
