- from Climate
Storm clouds and cold fronts are two things that affect daily weather. Such things are always changing.
That’s why weather predictions are only good for about a week ahead of time – if that. On the other hand, climate is mostly the same over decades or even centuries. Why? Because climate is influenced by things that change very slowly, if at all. These things include mountains, oceans, the landscape, and closeness to the equator. Their steady influence makes for regular kinds of weather patterns, and so they create a steady climate.
