Weather refers to the atmospheric condition at a certain time or place.

Typically, weather is measured in terms of:

  • wind

  • humidity
  • atmospheric pressure
  • cloudiness
  • precipitation
Generally, weather will vary throughout the day, week or season.

Although similar, weather is different from climate.

Basically, weather is a subset of climate and thus weather across the world will be affected due to climate change.
