Weather & Climate

Scientists describe the condition of the atmosphere as weather. Sunny, rainy and cloudy are all examples of terms used to describe this condition. Weather is primarily measured in terms of temperature, atmospheric pressure (or the pressure of the air resting on the Earth), precipitation and humidity. Patterns of weather in specific areas are known as climates. They are used to describe what we predict the weather conditions to be, not what they actually are.
