comment If 「は」 marks a topic, and 「が」 marks a subject, what does 「です」 do in terms of nuance?

comment What is the difference between all the weather words: 気象{きしょう}, 天気{てんき} and 天候{てんこう}?
I'm going to reopen this for now because the linked question doesn't address 気象. I think that if we get a good answer here, we can close the other question as a duplicate, because an answer about all three words should also address the other question.
