The climate is determined by the average environmental factors (temperature, precipitation, sunshine) of a certain area based on data
measured over a longer (usually 30 years) period of time. The same
environmental factors of a shorter period of time is considered the
weather. The climate is influenced by a number of factors. The sun,
location on earth, proximity of seas and altitude are the most
important ones. By checking out climate data one can estimate
reasonably well the chance of certain weather conditions on a
particular destination in a particular period of time.
Nowadays the short-term weather can be predicted fairly accurately.
For the long term this is impossible as the eventual weather
conditions are determined by a great many different factors. A large
chance of snow is not a guarantee for snow, the same goes for
sunshine, precipitation and drought. However by checking out climate
data you can see what the chances are on particular weather conditions
and take them into account while planning your holiday or another trip
to a particular area. Based on the information provided on the site a
fairly good estimation can be made of possible weather conditions for
all countries in the world.
