Expert Answer:

The day-to-day conditions of the atmosphere at a place with respect to temperature, pressure, humidity, rainfall, etc. constitute the weather of a place. Weather is never constant anywhere. The weather at a place changes even over short periods of time. Therefore, it is difficult to predict weather of a place.

On the other hand, climate is the average weather pattern at a place taken over a long period of time. Although, the weather might change every day, the average weather pattern remains constant. Therefore, it is easy to predict the climate of a place.
