When I duck "clime in paris" shows me the time (Time IA) in paris not the clime (Weather IA).

I've tried that before. "climate in paris" does't show any IA.

neither Clime or Climate in paris shows any IA.

Ismab, I think the current usage of the IA is 'weather', perhaps of some word-meaning thing.

Try weather for clime related searches :)

Hi there,

Thanks a lot for bringing this to our attention! It indeed is a bit of a bug and I was able to successfully reproduce this behaviour.

The reason the Time Instant Answer is appearing is because TimeandDate.com has a result on the page, which our system detects and shows the related Instant Answer for.

The reason for the TimeandDate result is because "clime" was considered a typo. I'll be sure to pass this on to the team.
