I am also confused when to use the difinite article "the" or not, when the "wind" denotes the "air", it can be both a countable noun and an uncountable noun, if it is an uncoutable noun here, definitely, you can not use "the" here. Just my opionion
There is no 'what wind'. There's just 'the wind'. 'The' is used when there is just one of something, for example, 'the sun', 'the earth'. There is only one wind in my present experience, so I use 'the'. Sure, there are more winds in other places, but here where I am, there is only 'the wind'.
