There is often confusion between weather and climate. Weather is the condition of the atmosphere at a particular place over a short period of time, whereas climate refers to the weather pattern(statistics) of a place over a long period , long enough to yield meaningful averages.
There are several elements that make up the weather and climate of a place. The major of these elements are the following: temperature, pressure, wind, solar energy, humidity , precipitation, and topography.
