The difference between weather and climate is basically in the long term availability of both.

Weather can be defined as the atmospheric condition of a place for usually a short period of time. Where has the climate is the combination of all these conditions over a really long period of time.

So basically weather is the short-term version of enviromental conditions and climate is its long-term counterpart.

They both obviously yield a lot of great statistical data that greatly helps us in undetstand, reacfting and predicting the conditions of our environment, but all in all statistical climate data are usually more difficult to collect than weather - due od course to its great size/span of time.
