“Wind” = movement of air from high pressure to
low pressure (ex: poke a hole in a tire)
Trade Winds: high P (30°) → low P (0°)
Westerlies: high P (30°) → low P (60°) carry
weather across U.S. from west → east
Polar winds: → bring cold air from poles
(90° → 60°)
Occur during low pressure conditions.
Storm front = when two air masses with
different temperatures meet.
