More About Thermal Wind

The wind that we get in Squamish is thermal wind. It is simple to understand. You basically need warm weather up worth, which creates a low pressure system. The colder temperature down south creates a high pressure system. The air, wanting to equalise the pressure will then move from south to north, creating the thermal wind that we get everyday in Squamish. On the Squamish Windsports Society website, you can find the temperature gradient. In order to have thermal wind, we just need warmer weather up north and colder weather down south. Even a couple degrees different works!
