Does wind make the clouds move faster?

Asked by Natalia Mullins

The wind is often strongest in the upper troposphere (there are no clouds in the upper atmosphere), so upper tropospheric clouds will move faster than near-surface clouds. Convection: strong updrafts will force particles upward, as will forced convection by wind reaching obstacles.
