The weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period of time.
Put simply the climate of some place on Earth is the daily weather that place experiences over the year. Places nearer the equator are generally hotter than places nearer the poles of the planet and places nearer the poles experience seasonal changes in their weather but after that the climate of a place is dictated by the planetary wind systems and the amount of moisture (precipitation) this brings.

Climate either refers to the weather in a particular area, or to the mood (the emotional "weather") in a particular place or group of people.
