Why does it seem that the wind stops as soon as the sun goes down sometimes?

    According to meterologist Bob Ryan, “During the day, as the sun warms the Earth, rising air currents can mix the upper and lower atmosphere. This brings some of the high-speed wind energy from the upper atmosphere closer to the surface. (Because of friction with the Earth’s surface, wind speed usually increases with height.)

    When the sun sets and the rising air currents stop, wind at the surface diminishes.”
