You're right. I had it backwards.Not sure that this makes sense. Wouldn't the warm side cause air to rise and draw in air from the cold side. At surface level, the winds would be from the night side and at upper levels, toward the night side. Of course, the winds would a lot greater if there was some mixing function like planetary rotation.
The overall density of the atmosphere would also come into play regarding surface winds, but atmospheric winds would be pretty strong regardless.
