Here is your word of the day, why not try and use the word in a piece of creative writing? link it to this post and let everyone take a look.

Williwaw

williwaw \WIL-ee-waw\noun:

a violent squall that blows in near-polar latitudes, as in the Strait of Magellan, Alaska, and the Aleutian Islands.

 

Outside, a new note has crept into the wind, a black williwaw sound straight from the terrible wastes to the north.
— Walker Percy, The Moviegoer, 1961
