List of local Winds

Land and sea breezes, representing a complete cycle of diurnal winds, are in fact, monsoon winds at local scale because they change their direction twice in every 24-hour period. These local diurnal monsoon winds very commonly known as land and see breezes are found in the coastal areas wherein sea breeze blows from sea to land, during day time and land breeze moves from land to sea during night due to differential heating and cooling of land and water.
