How does wind affect the climate of an area?
Climate depends on where winds are blowing from. For example, if a wind is blowing from the equator, the climate in the region would naturally be hotter as the equator region receives direct sunlight. However, if the wind is blowing from the polar regions, the area would be colder due to low temperatures.
Yes, water does affect climate: One reason that Britain 'enjoys' a temperate, rather variable, wet climate is that the prevailing south-westerly wind passes over the Atlantic Ocean. The wind, with the warmth from the Sun, take up water vapour, form clouds, and blow the rain filled clouds over Britain.
Wind currents can push warm or cold air in the direction of the currents. They can even push storms in the direction the current is flowing. the wind movement also influences the climate of a particular place. The unequal heating of the earth's surface results in the formation of the different wind systems. Wind will determine what the local climate is depending on topography and latitude. An area exposed to the prevailing wind on a…
