Weather Forecasting

Weather Weather is the condition of a region or Earth over a short period of time such as days or weeks. Climate on the other hand is the prevailing weather conditions (winds, temperature, air pressure, humidity, rain, sunshine, and cloudiness) of a region or the earth over a long period of time i.e. decades, centuries and longer periods of time.
