    When GOD creates the earth , He filled and covered up this world with earth, water and air . By placing the sun as the source of energy for the earth , when the land mass , water and air being heated from its sun ray then circulation of air took place , in such a rule as, hot air rise cool air sink, then become wind blowing every where on earth ,as we call it windy . That is where the wind come from. Furthermore GOD appointed one of HIS servants ,called King Solomon, during.1,000 BC. to be the mastered of the wind , so he order the wind to lift him and his tutorage on a platform to travel anywhere he wanted to preach the Oneness of GOD , the Lord of all the worlds.

    Differences in air pressure. Air actually has weight. So when you have a low pressure system in which there is convection (air rising), there has to be something to replace that air. Enter the high pressure system. It will replace the air that is rising into the upper atmosphere. Since these are massive systems, us small Humans feel them on a large scale; windy days.

    Wind is a result the earth's surface being heated more in some places than in other places.

    Differences in heating result in differences in atmospheric pressure where some places have higher pressure than other places.

    The wind blows from areas of HIGHer pressure toward areas of LOWer pressure in a never ending and futile attempt to balance the differences in pressure.

    Areas with higher pressure ==> more mass

    Areas with lower pressure ==> less mass.

    Think of areas with higher pressure as hills.

    Think of areas with lower pressure as valleys.

    Air has mass -- we feel it on our face when the wind blows --...so it flows 'downhill' from areas of higher pressure to areas of lower pressure.

    How dumb do you have to be to think that giving victims of crimes the opportunity to get revenge will fix ANYTHING? Bad things happen to people all the time and there's nobody to punish or blame! That's just life! Grow up stupid American idiots!

      What the heck has this got to do with wind?

    Wind is caused by a difference in air pressure. Pressure is force/area. Hence, wind is essentially a difference in force which is accelerating your body in a certain direction.

      As if differences in air pressure just happen. You missed the first two steps in the process.

    Have you ever watched the swirls in water when it is heating up on the stove? That's the basic dynamic that wind is driven by. Hot stuff tends to be less dense, so it rises. When it rises, it leaves space behind, so new less hot stuff flows into that space. Then that stuff heats up, rises, and leaves space causing more stuff to flow into that area. Depending on how hotter and colder areas are oriented, you get wind flowing in different directions.

    The air

    Upwind.

    Wind is caused by air flowing from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. Warm air rises which reduces pressure. Cooler air flows to areas of low pressure to even out the pressure differential. This air, in turn, heats up. An excellent example of this is sea and land breezes. During the day land heats up quickly while the sea stays stable. Air over the hot land heats up and rises. Cooler air from the sea flows in and we get a sea breeze. At night the reverse occurs. The land cools down quickly and air over the ocean stays warm. Relatively cool air over the land flows out to sea, and we get a land breeze.
