why is it harder to breathe in when the wind is strong?

Since the high pressure air moves faster than the lower pressure air in your lungs, turbulence builds up around your nose and mouth. This turbulence prevents air from easily reaching your lungs and gives you the feeling that your air is obstructed.

Your lungs work by sucking air in, which means you need to generate low pressure in order to breathe. However, moving air already has a lowered pressure, so the effect of your lungs’ low pressure is less significant.
