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.
