Look outside the window! How does the sky look to you? Sometimes it is a hot and sunny day, sometimes a cold and gloomy one, some days are rainy and some are windy. This is all a result of many changes going on in the atmosphere (the blanket of air that covers the earth). Weather is an atmosphere of a place at a particular time. The weather of a place can change rapidly. It may be bright and sunny with a clear sky in the morning while in the evening the sky may be covered with dark clouds. It may start raining in the morning but the afternoon may be bright and sunny. Early mornings and evenings are cool whereas it is quite warm during the day. On contrary, the climate is the year-by-year variation of the atmosphere’s condition over a large area.
