How is wind generated?

    Wind is the movement of air from high pressure to low pressure.  (The second law of thermodynamics that states higher energy states move toward lower energy states.)  The differences in pressure result from the warming and cooling of air.

    Wind is generated by differences in air pressure. Air moves from high pressure areas to low pressure areas. Combined with the Coriolis effect from the spinning of the Earth, the vertical air movement from pressure differences is given horizontal movement, creating wind that travels north, south, east, or west.
