It is the clockwise turning of the wind direction as we move up through the atmosphere. For example, a wind changing in height from south near the ground to southwest at 5,000 feet and finally to west at 10,000 feet. This is indicative of warm air advection. Compare with backing winds.
a wind that turns clockwise with height
A wind that changes its direction in a clockwise motion. An example would be a west wind changing to a northwest wind.
Wind that is changing direction in a clockwise manner.
Wind which changes in a clockwise direction with time at a given location (e.g., from southerly to westerly), or which change direction in a clockwise sense with height (e.g., southeasterly at the surface turning to southwesterly aloft). Veering winds with height are indicative of warm air advection (WAA).
A wind that shifts in a clockwise direction with height. For example, a south wind at 850 mb and a west wind at 700 mb would be a veering wind. Also can be a wind shift at the surface or a particular pressure level in which over time the wind shifts in a clockwise direction at a point location.
In the Northern Hemisphere, a wind that rotates in a clockwise direction with increasing height; the opposite of backing wind.
