The Climate vs. the Weather

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

The National Weather Service clears the air!

What’s the difference between climate and weather?

Climate and weather—the two are so often confused. A meteorologist from the National Weather Service will join us to explain the distinctions, and to answer your questions.


About the National Weather Service
NWS is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (a division of the Department of Commerce) with a network of 122 local weather forecast offices and numerous regional centers that keep tabs around the clock on weather, fire, river, coast and ocean conditions. NWS forecasters rely on a network of radars, satellites, ocean buoys, weather balloons, other observations, and supercomputers to provide timely, accurate, and reliable forecasts. They also issue critical watches and warnings before extreme weather strikes.
