Quick Reference

A localized wind that occurs during a solar eclipse, which is of doubtful scientific validity, despite many anecdotal accounts. It appears to be a largely subjective phenomenon, although there is some evidence to suggest that short-lived fall winds or a temporary change in the strength of a prevailing sea-breeze may sometimes occur.
