Climate is what you expect.  Weather is what you get.

Weather is what you wear.  Climate is what’s in your closet.

Weather is the day-to-day state of the atmosphere and its short-term variation in minutes to days to weeks.  Folks regard weather as the combination of temperature, humidity, precipitation, cloudiness, visibility, and wind.  Climate is the overall weather of a place averaged over a period of time such as 10 to 20 to 30 years.
