Weather

WEATHER, n. Wether. G., The primary sense of this word is air, wind or atmosphere; probably the Gr., whence ether. Properly, the air; hence,

1. The state of the air or atmosphere with respect to heat or cold, wetness or dryness, calm or storm, clearness or cloudiness, and the like; as warm weather; cold weather; wet weather; dry weather; calm weather; tempestuous weather; fair weather; cloudy weather; hazy weather, and the like.
2. Change of the state of the air.
3. Storm; tempest.

These last significations are not now in use, unless by a poetic license.

Stress of weather, violent winds; force of tempests.

WEATHER, v.t. wether.

1. To air; to expose to the air. Rarely used.
2. In seamens language, to sail to the windward of something else; as, to weather a cape; to weather another ship. As this is often difficult, hence,
3. To pass with difficulty.

To weather a point, to gain or accomplish it against opposition.

To weather out, to endure; to hold out to the end; as, to weather out a storm.

Weather is used with several words, either as an adjective, or as forming part of a compound word.
