Top best answers to the question «What is the primary cause of winds»

The primary source of wind is caused by the unequal heating of the earth's surface by the sun. When one area is heated quicker than other areas, the air warms, expands, becomes lighter, and rises. This causes the cooler heavier air to rush in and take its place. This rush of cooler air is what we know as the wind.
