Local and Global winds

Local Winds is only in a small area due to local heat patterns and Global Winds blow across continents winds follow curved patterns due to the Coriolis Effect. First I am going to tell you how the winds start. Local Winds start by Sea Breeze, on a hot day at the beach land heats up faster than the water. The warmer air over land rises, while the cooler air over the ocean rushes in to take its place. Next I will tell how Global Winds are started. The Coriolis Effect causes winds traveling north to curve to the east and winds that are traveling south to curve to the west. The example of local winds is land and Sea Breezes. Some examples of Global Winds are Trade winds and Westerlies.The compare is that Sea breezes blow to the land and Land breezes blow to the sea. The way Global Winds and Local Winds are the same is because both of the winds blow from any direction.
