Hi, Ruifeng,

Wind, in the sense of "moving air," can be thought of uncountably or countably.

Thought of uncountably, wind is just moving air, regardless of pauses or changes.

Thought of countably, the moving air becomes numerous as it pauses and shifts.

Please note: we don't use "a wind" or "many winds" in the countable usage.
