After a series of Weather Wonders that focused on how global winds develop to move heat around the planet, this week's Weather Wonders looks at winds closer to home.

Using the standard scales of meteorology (Planetary, Synoptic, Mesoscale, Microscale) Brett shows us how the winds become more variable the closer they get to the microscale (which is the scale we typically notice at the surface of the Earth).
