Wind is moving air. What causes the air to move so rapidly?

It's the movement of warm air and cool air that causes wind.

WARM air weighs less than cool air so it RISES. Cool air rushes in to fill the gap underneath the rising warm air. This cooler air then warms up and rises leaving a space for more cool air to fill in. This movement of cool air in to replace the rising warm air creates wind.

A windy day is often a sign that the weather is about to change.

h2o<-------not blowing hot air. LOL

At this time of the year most winds bring in cold fronts but they can also bring in warm fronts. it depends on the direction and what is behind it. its one way of Mother nature telling us she don't like Michigan. The weather is completely different than fifty or sixty years ago. We at one time had weeks in the summer when there was no or very little wind during July and August I can remember the lake looking like class for a week or two on end. This new weather Bah.

Don't like Michigan
LOL

Bob, the wind might have gotten worse, but hasn't the weather gotten a bit warmer in the Septmber and October months? I can remember last year being out in just a t-shirt at the end of October.

There's no El-Nino this year the warm water in on the west side of the Pacific Ocean. That means a cold winter and lots of snow in Feb.

It seems every winter is predicted to be bad. But I hope you are h2o. We could sure use a cold, snowy one. Need the lake level to come up. Another winter like like the last couple and the lake will be much worse next year. Let it snow!!!

How true the fall months have been warmer for several years. As far as snow that falls here has little to do with our water level. The snow and rain around the Lake Superior water shed is what controls our lake level and there has been less snow and rain up there for several years. Also when the water was so high they cut some off from the Soo and they stopped to much and they won't open it up again so we have to suffre with shallow water. It will come back up in time. You still don't know what shallow water on St Clair is you should have tried to fish it in 1932,33 and 34 it was really shallow then.
