Adjective. Old English.
A word used to characterize an area where the wind blows so strongly that it makes a terrifying roaring sound.
Used mainly in the 19th century to describe the windy conditions of the weather in England.
Made famous by the classic novel by Emily Brontë, 'Wuthering Heights'. The hostile Yorkshire Moors in the early 19th century provide the setting for the novel. 'Wuthering Heights' is the name of a house on these moors and it is named after the wild weather often experienced in what is today known as 'Brontë Country'.
Person A "It's fair blowing a gail out there."
Person B "Yes, do you that that roraing sound? The wind is blowing so hard, it's wuthering."
