I like to make these weather lessons relevant when possible. And after getting several questions from viewers like you about the windy days we've had recently, I had to jump on the topic.

Why has it been so windy? Here's a look at the answer in the video above.

After watching the video you should be able to answer the following questions:
-Is the polar jet north or south of us in the winter months?
-What are isobars?
-If isobars are tightly packed, what type of wind does that produce?
-What other season is known as being breezy too?
