    Climate refers to the long-term, average weather patterns in a particular geographic region. It is characterized by factors such as temperature, precipitation, wind, and humidity, and it is influenced by the region’s geography, latitude, and other environmental factors.

    Some key aspects of climate include:

    Temperature – The average, minimum, and maximum temperatures in a region over an extended period.

    <b style=”background-color: transparent; font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit; color: var(–bb-body-text-color);”>Wind patterns – The typical wind speed, direction, and variability.

    Climate is distinct from weather, which refers to the short-term, day-to-day conditions. Climate describes the overall trends and averages over 30 years or more, while weather refers to the conditions over a much shorter timescale.

    Understanding a region’s climate is important for agriculture, transportation, infrastructure planning, and many other human activities that are influenced by long-term weather patterns. Climate change, driven by factors like greenhouse gas emissions, can lead to shifts in a region’s typical climate over time.
