Will climate change effect wind patterns?

    Yes. Evidence that climate change significantly alters wind patterns has been found in several parts of the world, by many different scientists. This is because sea surface temperature changes atmospheric pressure patterns, which in turn affect wind patterns. Tropical storms, for instance, occur when heated air rises to create a low pressure area because the surface temperature of the sea has risen above 27 degrees Celsius. High pressure air speeds in to balance the pressure, and there’s your tropical hurricane. Accordingly, global warming is predicted to increase the strength of winds, making intense wind storms and hurricanes more frequent.
