Even though you may not realize it, you're already familiar with font weights: boldfaced text is a very common example of an increased font weight. Generally speaking, the darker and "more bold" a font appears, the heavier it is said to be. There are a great many ways to label the heaviness of fonts. For example, the font family known as Zurich has a number of variants such as Zurich Bold, Zurich Black, Zurich UltraBlack, Zurich Light, and Zurich Regular. Each of these uses the same basic font, but each has a different weight.
