How Does Air Move?

Answer

The air around us moves because of convection currents caused by the heating and cooling of the air. As the sun warms the land or water the air will heat and expand and rise. The cold air will replace the rising air and it will then be warmed by the land and sea. Air will also move from high pressure to low pressure.
