The winds are strong.

English: The winds are strong.

French: Les vents sont forts.

Instead of light winds, your pilots might say that the winds are strong or gusty. Even when winds are stronger, they usually don’t cause more than a normal amount of turbulence during take-off or landing, nor will they delay take-off or arrival and we still often choose to leave it out of our translations. Only when they mention specifically that strong winds may cause unforeseen amounts of turbulence or affect take-off or landing, do we make sure to include it in our translation. Even in this case, the exact speed and direction of the wind really don’t matter to the passengers. They simply care that the winds are strong enough to significantly affect their flight.

For now, you can translate this as “les vents sont forts”.

Les vents (m,pl)=The winds

Seoul, May 2019. Séoul, mai 2019. There are several palaces and shrines in Seoul. The palaces were former residences for Korean royalty and the shrines were where they were buried. The video clip shows the end of a guard-changing ceremony at Gyeongbokgung. You'll notice that many people are wearing traditional Korean outfits. You can rent these outfits at places outside of the palaces for about 22,000 Wons (About $25 CAD), and wearing them grants you free entrance to the palaces. (It's still much cheaper to just pay the entrance fee.) Most of the palaces offer free, scheduled, guided tours in Korean, English, Chinese, and Japanese.
