Weather is the day-to-day condition of Earth’s atmosphere.
Climate refers to average conditions over long periods and is defined by year-after-year patterns of temperature and precipitation.
Climate is rarely uniform even within a region. Environmental conditions can vary over small distances, creating microclimates.
For example, in the Northern Hemisphere, south-facing sides of trees and buildings receive more sunlight, and are often warmer and drier, than north-facing sides. These differences can be very important to many organisms.
