Day to day weather pattern and Climatic

condition of a region have major influence on the living beings on earth. It

impacts all aspects of life, such as human beings, animals, plants,

agriculture, landforms etc. On daily basis one can feel the essence of weather

and climate which has considerable impact on their active life. In primitive

era civilization was grown along the river. At later stage when agriculture

practice was developed the rain-based crop pattern was identified. Different

region on earth has different form of rain pattern and results in varying

agricultural practices. The changing and different pattern of rainfall has

direct link with the local weather and global climatic condition.

How to understand Weather and Climate?


region across the globe has different seasons across the year, there are

various exceptions where it is same throughout the year. However, the major

population of human being is witnessing varying season, it may be cold, summer,

winter, rain etc. Season is typically a division in a year based on changing


In a day to day life we witness the nature of atmosphere

or our surrounding like, temperature, rainfall, humidity, cloudiness, sunshine

etc. This is called weather which is never static and hence cannot be

generalized. One region of a city may have cloudy sky, another may have bright

sun light, and another may have heavy rain fall. The nature of weather at any

place can change any point of time.

Climate is defined as average condition of

weather pattern for an area. The average is obtained by using at least weather

pattern of past 35 years. The average is static and can represent the condition

of an area more accurately.

The main elements of climate are temperature;

pressure; winds; and rainfall. All these elements are highly variable and

constitute the weather of an area and climate in long run.

Types of Climate:

Global Climate:

Usually It is referred for worlds climate and

used in broader prospects where the impact of global warming has increased or

increasing the earths temperature results in melting of glaciers. Green house

gases present in atmosphere trap the heat (due to anthropogenic activity,

radiative) and thus increasing the average temperature of earth. It is estimated

that by end of 21st Century the average temperature of earth will be increased

by 2 to 3 degree centigrade.

Regional Climate:

It is a weather pattern which is referred for a

certain geographical area for study or analysis. In broad term all types of

climate are finally contributing towards Global climate. It is differentiated

for sake of study and deeper analysis with reference to area. If we discuss

about Indian Monsoon that means we are typically discussing about a regional

climatic condition.

Local Climate:

It represents relatively a smaller geographical

area, which means the weather pattern has impact on a region. Their weather

pattern may or may not have larger impact on nearby area, however it effects

and influence the weather pattern of regional climate.
