So often March is windy and rainy. What is the explanation behind the chilly winds of March?
Sharp contrasts of cold air to the north and warm air to the south create March winds.
As the Earth rotates toward the sun and daylight increases, the atmosphere warms.
When warm southern air and cool northern air meet, the differences in temperature creates pressure. This pressure creates wind.
