mention two factors that influence the pattern of winds?

Dear student, 

Following are the factors that influence the pattern of wind :-
1. Pressure gradient- wind speed depends upon the pressure gradient. Wind speed will be more if the pressure gradient is steep.
2. Frictional force -  As friction is greater near the surface therefore it exerts a frictional drag on the air blowing just above it. This can change the wind's direction and can slow it down. 

Regards.
