Watch this video to find out the real reasons why people confuse weather and climate.

What is Weather? Weather is something that most people pay close attention to everyday. In fact, you probably check the weather forecast at least once daily. Knowing what the weather is going to be like helps us to figure out the types of clothes that we’ll wear, and it also impacts our plans for the day. For example, your soccer team was scheduled to play a game, but rainy conditions cause the game to be canceled. You might decide to stay at home to watch television or read a book instead. On a more serious level, severe weather—such as tornadoes and hurricanes—can negatively affect the people living in that area. Intense weather systems can cause damage to or loss of property, as well as injure or kill people. These types of drastic weather events can change a person’s life in an instant.
