One way to think about wind is that it is
simply “air” in motion. The formation of
wind occurs when suns heats up air in part of the
atmosphere, while another part of the atmosphere
may be much colder. As air warms, it expands
causing it to rise and replace colder air above
it. As air expands, pressure decreases compared
with colder regions where pressure is higher. Air
flows from high pressure to low pressure and this
is what causes wind to blow!
