What are the types of winds?

Winds can be broadly divided into three types.

  • Permanent winds – The trade winds, westerlies and easterlies are the permanent winds. These blow constantly throughout the year in a particular direction.
  • Seasonal winds – These winds change their direction in different seasons. For example monsoons in India.
  • Local winds – These blow only during a particular period of the day or year in a small area. For example, land and sea breeze.
