Fo Makes an excellent point when he said "and don't forget the wind is invisible and comes from behind you"...
...or comes from above.
Because we normally only "see" the wind where it interacts with us and the surface of the earth (water, sand, trees, kites, etcetera), it's easy to forget that the atmosphere is three-dimensional. At any particular time and place, layers or pockets of air above may be invisibly moving very differently from those closest to the surface. Often much faster, and often not far above. Various geographic, temperature, pressure and other dynamic factors can and do cause those elements to move up and down, sometimes surprising those of us on the surface.
I visualize the atmosphere as turbulent water in a flowing river, swirling and surging in three dimensions.
