Winds

Wind is the movement of air from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. But winds are caused by the unequal heating of Earth's surface. You can use an anemometer, a device that has three or four cups that spin on a pole, to measure wind speeds.

Local Winds

Local Winds are winds that blow over a short distance. But local winds are caused by the unequal heating of Earth's surface within a small area. Now, there are two types of shore breezes. One breeze is the sea breeze. A sea breeze is a local wind that blows from the sea. But they occur during the daytime. The last breeze is the land breeze. A land breeze is a local wind that blows from the ocean. But they occur during the nighttime. These are Local Winds!
