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
