What causes winds?


Wind is caused by a difference in atmospheric pressure. Around areas of low pressure, air rises upwards in the atmosphere as air rises upwards, more air moves in (sideways) to replace it. As a result, a region of low pressure is created. Then, air from a high pressure region moves to a low pressure region, causing wind.
