What is climate?

and how is it different from weather?

Climate is the statistical behaviour of weather over periods of time. Weather is the state of the atmosphere at a specific place and time in regards to moisture, temperature, wind, pressure, etc. Climate describes the average conditions in a region over a number of years, while weather describes conditions at the local scale during a short period in time. The main difference between climate and weather is time.
