The different types of winds

The different types of winds name are local and global winds. Local wind only small area due to local heat patterns, but global winds blow across continents winds follow curved patterns due to Coriolis Effect. Global wind-Coriolis effect causes winds traveling north to curve to the east and winds traveling south to curve to the west. Polar easterlies,

westerlies and trade winds are all types of Global winds. Global winds blow in the SAME direction every day. Local winds-sea breeze on a hot summer day at the beach, the 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. This wind is called a sea, or onshore, breeze.
