Weather is the atmospheric condition over a small area and a short period of time.
Short period?

Since the interior of the Antarctic never thaws, and the increased precipitation from a warmer atmosphere does add to the snow fall in the continent, it is academic why the interior snow levels are increasing.
Perhaps Santa will have to move to the South Pole soon. Merry Christmas.
And maybe he will move back to Turkey. Happy New Year.

I see your back. Spaced-out blues AKA "Brain dead ignored” said I drove you out. Good to see your back see being less than a box of rocks isn't all bad. Happy New Year. Oh try to remind spaced-out brain dead that this is still a FREE AMERICA.

Based on "how the Earth system has operated in the past, future stabilization of CO2 at 400-450 parts per million is unlikely to be sufficient to avoid a significant steady long-term sea level rise."

Possibly.

This reminds me of Louis XVI whose DNA was found in a gourd and analyzed recently. And his wife's, "Let them eat cake."
