Whether and Weather

In most dialects, weather and whether are pronouned either the same or a little bit different. That's why some people may confuse the two.

Weather refers to the state of the atmosphere:
  • The weather is good today.
  • When the weather warms, we'll go out to play volleyball.

Whether is a word used to introduce the first of two or more alternatives:

  • She would not tell me whether she was ill or not.
  • How can they know whether they have made an appropriate choice?
