Climate is what a place should get, weather is what actually happens

This is an afternoon thunderstorm, Northern Sydney style. A day, hot
and slightly hazy, the presence of the desert continent carried on the
breeze in a way you can almost smell. Not so much hot as vast and
slow. Sunlight with a yellow-orange cast and bushfires burning in
another state. Dense grey clouds that clot overhead in a matter of
minutes, then mass, biding their time and rumbling to each other in
Brobignagian conspiracy as the desert heavy wind slows and the rumour of
rain lies heavily over the querulously chattering birds and drooping
trees.
