The Westerlies are winds that blow from West to East across the United States.


The UK's prevailing winds blow from the South-West, over the Atlantic Ocean. This is what gives us mild, wet winters and temperate summers.



The Global Winds over the United States blow from West to East. Simple :).


Prevailing winds in the United States move from west to east.


there are several different ways, they all have to do with the 3 types of winds: trade winds, polar easterlies, and prevailing westerlies, in the u.s they all colide some where in the middle of our country, but that's why we have such weird weather!


Prevailing winds in the US are from the west. Of course, atmospheric pressure can push winds in many different directions.



At the latitude of most of the US, the prevailing winds blow from the southwest to the northeast. This obviously varies depending on the weather systems and geography of any site at any given moment, and Alaska, parts of Texas and Florida, and Hawaii are at different enough latitudes that the winds there may be predominantly in the opposite direction.


The winds can blow from all round the compass. In Britain, an easterly wind comes to us from the continent and. in winter, is often very cold.


A tropical depression causes hurricanes and typhoons on water most typically for the US in the Gulf of Mexico and when these reach land their strong winds blow away loose materials.



They are weak because they are close to the equator and near the equator us hot but the air pressure is high


They wanted to "blow" the US so they could invade and take over. This is when the US joined the Allied Powers.


It is an analogy, In saying "storms make oaks grow deeper roots" one is saying that the reaction of oak trees to high winds (that may blow them over) is for them to develop strong deep roots (which they do because the live and resist storm winds for 100s of years). The analogy is that in life the (emotional) happenings that may potentially destroy us also serve to make us stronger.


Massive retaliation. The policy was called MAD- Mutual Assured Destruction. If you blow up my country, I will blow up your country.

Science helps us understand how oil floats, where the winds blow, what coastlines are likely to be damaged, and what physical and chemical agents are useful to minimise the damage from the spill.


The two winds that bring us nice weather are the good and the awesome winds of Kindness


The US DOES use wind energy- but it is not free. Wind generators cost money to build and to maintain. The wind does not always blow, and winds may blow in an area that does not need electricity. there is a cost to moving electricity from one area to another.


Well there are many different winds in the US but faster pace winds in unpopulated areas where there could be wind turbines put up to create electricity more efficiently.


They had a no1 hit in the US called over and over, it was their only ever no1 hit.


IF we dont blow them up first probally still no.


In the north-east region of the US (Pennsylvania, New York, New Hampshire, etc.) the weather (which is pushed by the winds) usually moves from the south-west to the north-east.


The prevailing winds of temperate zones in the northern hemisphere (which would include the majority of the U.S.) blow from southwest to northeast, carrying any storms with them.
