Climate & weather: what's the difference?
There is a variety of ways to explain the difference. Here are a few that may shed some light:

Climate is what you expect; weather is what you get.

Climate is about long-term records, trends and averages;
weather is the day to day experience.

Climate is the sum or synthesis of all the weather recorded over a long period of time. It tells us the average or most common conditions, or extremes, or counts of events, or frequencies. Weather is a description of conditions over a short period of time - a "snap shot" of the atmosphere at a particular time.

If weather is the watch then climate is the calendar.

What's Available

The BoM has resources such as brochures, reports and glossaries in the form of web pages and PDF documents. You will find: weather charts, weather forecasts, climate data, maps, graphics, animations and details of the Bureau of Meteorology's structure and services.

I probably use this site every single day. The real time radar and chart readings are invaluable to me and best of all they are free to access and use.
