    The main difference between climate and weather has to do with time. Climate measures how the atmosphere functions over a long period of time whereas weather measures the conditions of the atmosphere over a short time period. A similarity would be that both climate and weather deal with changes in the atmosphere.  Here is a really helpful article that explains the how weather and climate data are used on a daily basis: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/noaa-n/climate/climate_weather.html

    Climates are classified by their long-term weather patterns.  If an area has very high temperatures and is extremely dry, this area would be classified as a desert.  The same methods apply for tropical, temperate, arctic etc.
