Do you agree with my definition of weather?

Weather is a natural phenomenon which consists of such things (factors) as air temperature, air dampness, precipitation and other factors.

Yes. That's a general description that fits.

"Air dampness" is humidity or atmospheric moisture.

And don't forget wind (air movement) as a major factor.

And cloud cover, although that is related to the precipitation already mentioned. But if you ask what weather is, I think most people would put wind as a major factor. Although I suppose it depends on where they are.

Also, climate has factors. Weather is more about what happens - ie weather is described in terms of processes (sunshine, rain, snow, wind, humidity, clouds) whereas climate has factors that cause the climate in that area. Mountains, sea, prevailing winds, elevation etc.

Am I explaining that OK?
Temperature is not a factor.
Temperature is a result of those factors.
In weather, it is a transient result of various factors.
