    Do you know what "inclemency" means? Did you look it up in the same dictionary?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Inclemency, as of weather.

    Is it "as of" that's confusing you? You really need to be more clear. You understand "inclemency" and I'm pretty sure you know what "weather" is, which only leaves two words that could be causing you a problem.

    Re: Inclemency, as of weather.

    The link you gave includes multiple definitions for "rigor". One of which means "inclemency" as in inclement weather. Be careful when using the word "rigor". It is not an adjective so you won't find "rigor weather" but it may be used to signify the harshness of weather.

    I can't speak for AmE, but BrE doesn't use any form of "rigour" to talk about inclement weather.

    I have seen the "rigors of winter" somewhere. I'm fairly sure you would use the same thing in BrE.

    OK I'm confusing with "as of" and can't related the two word "inclemency" and "weather".

    Can I write it a "inclemency about weather"? I mean, is "Inclemency, as of weather"="inclemency about weather" correct?

    "Inclemency" means "harsh conditions" particularly in regards to weather. It is very often used in "inclement weather" which is a term you may not have heard before and that could explain your confusion. "As of" means it is used to describe weather and not something else.
