Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : Defendants in court cases probably don’t spend much time worrying about inclement weather. They’re too busy hoping to meet a clement judge so they will be granted clemency. They should hope they don’t meet an inclement judge! Clement, inclement, and clemency all derive from the Latin clemens, which means “mild” or “calm.” All three terms can refer to an individual’s degree of mercy or to the relative pleasantness of the weather.
