What directions are local winds blowing on a hot and dry day?
The direction that local winds are blowing on any day can vary. It depends entirely on what direction the winds are coming from.
Land and sea breezes (local winds) are typical of such winds. Because water heats up and cools down more slowly than does dry land, the air along a shoreline is alternately warmer over the water and cooler over the land, and vice versa. These differences account for the fact that winds tend to blow offshore during the evening and on-shore during the day.
