City of Winds by Fidan Nazim Qizi

Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, is known as the City of Winds. This name is apt today, but it was first used in ancient times. There are two sources of Baku’s breezes. Cold winds blow in from the Caspian Sea, sometimes reaching gale force (32 mph or more), and warmer winds move overland into the city.
