Do you know what wind has to do with pressure?

When the wind is blowing hard sometimes you feel like you have to lean into the direction of the wind in order to compensate the force being applied by the wind on your body’s surface, so you don’t get blown over. Hence, wind is applying pressure, which is the force divided by the projected area of the surface. Wind pressure is related to the square of the wind speed.
