Yes, wind can blow and distort sound waves. This is apparent sometimes when listening to open-air concerts close to the sound stage and far from it. Wind currents and atmospheric phenomena can alter or distort the sound waves, which travel through air (some medium is required) by compressing and decompressing the air molecules. Winds and other air currents can perturb that action and distort the sound, either by altering its amplitude, changing its apparent direction, or even altering its frequency slightly.

How can wind affect sound waves?

Yes it can because, depending on the wind speed, it creates air pressure diferences. if it is faster it travels slower and if its slower the sound waves travel faster. All of this is regardless of the wind direction.

What factors affect the speed of sound waves?

Some factors that affect the speed of sound waves are density of medium, temperature, direction of wind, and humidity. Remember that a sound wave is just a pressure disturbance that travels through a medium by particle interactions. The nature of the medium will affect the sound waves velocity.
