The winds that originate in the North and South Polar regions and blow towards Circum-polar Low Pressure Zone are known as Polar Winds. They start from Polar High Pressure Zone, and originate from ice capped land-mass in Arctic and Antarctic latitudes. In the Northern Hemisphere, they blow from the north-east, and are called the North- East Polar Winds; and in the Southern Hemisphere, they blow from the south-east and arc callcd the South-East Polar Winds.They are also deflected to the west in both hemispheres and hence are known as Polar Easterlies.
