Weather reports mentioned on television and in newspapers are predicted by the Meteorological Department:

Weather stations located globally record the temperatures, rainfall, wind speeds, directions, air pressures, and other weather features on a daily basis.

The Meteorological Department prepares a weather report and plots it on the maps. Weather forecasters predict the weather and then transmit it on the radio and television.

Weather is the short-term changes in the atmosphere in a particular place at a particular time. It depends on several factors like wind, moisture, storms, snow, temperatures, etc.

A climate is the long-term weather pattern of a specific location. It is based on local long-term patterns, such as those related to weather, such as temperature, humidity, and wind.

For instance, Patna has a dry environment. The nights are often cold and windy, while the days are typically scorching and dry.

Today's weather in Hyderabad: sunny with a 30-degree temperature and 86% humidity. The climate of Hyderabad is arid. The days are usually hot and dry, while the nights are cool and breezy.

The climate of a place may be predicted more easily because it is the average weather pattern of that location over a long period of time that is consistent. In contrast, the weather can change every day since it varies over a short period of time, making it harder to anticipate.
