    "california tian qi hen re" in this sentence, "qi" is the falling tone(4th tone) , and "tian qi" means the weather.
    "ni jidian qi chuang","qi" falling-rising tone(3rd tone), and "qi chuang" means to get up.
    There are two totally different characters althought with similar letters of the alphabet.

    Sukie is right.
    "tian qi(4th tone)"(Chinese 天气) and "qi(3rd tone) chuang" (Chinese 起床)
    you see,the "气" and the"起" ,they are two different word.
