(assuming air matches the station's angular velocity,
I don't think that is a valid assumption for the entire radius of the station. The air would match the station speed at the "ground" level where there is a lot of surface area of contact acting on it. At the central core of the station I don't think that the air would have even the same angular velocity. The breezes there might actually be more influanced by the passing of the Core Shuttle cars.

I don't know what the function relating distance form "ground" to relative airspeed (either linear or angular) would be, though.
