In brief: Extrinsic asthma
This is a type of asthma where your lungs get "twitchy" or airways go into spasm when exposed to cold air. Some people will cough instead of wheezing.
Many get the same symptoms of wheezing whenever they get a cold, or say that "when i get a cold it always goes into bronchitis." you should get a breathing test to make sure that your lung function is normal otherwise. Albuterol will stop the cough.

In brief: Could be asthma
Trouble breathing when the wind is blowing could be asthma but i would expect other symptoms to occur even if the wind weren't blowing in your face.
COPD and other respiratory illnesses could cause trouble like this. A breathing test would be helpful to sort this out. See your primary care provider.
