Science - Meteorology / Climate
English term or phrase: weather
¿Alguien podría explicarme la diferencia entre weather y climate, o bien, decirme qué término utilizar en este caso para cada uno?

Many aspects of human activities strongly depend on abrupt changes in weather and on the oscillations of climate.
In its everyday life and activities the human society closely interacts with the atmosphere and climate and weather, which are intimately related to the state of the atmosphere.
