Jet Stream

Jet stream refers to the world's fastest upper-air winds. These winds travel in a west-to-east direction at speeds of around 130-300 kilometers per hour, at approximately 9,000 meters from the ground. Jet streams occur where there are large differences in air temperature and air pressure.  Changes to jet stream winds indicate a change in the motion of the atmosphere and weather.
