Unformatted text preview: replace the rising hot air, we feel wind blowing. This is how temperature causes wind. These varying differences in temperature are called convections or advections. Air is also moved by different pressures. Jet streams are narrow air currents located between the stratosphere and the troposphere caused by the heating of the atmosphere. They run between areas with large differences in temperature. They are used to help forecast the weather and used to help planes reach their destination faster, since by traveling within them the plane becomes more aerodynamically sound.
