Whirlwind, a general term for any whirling body of air. The term is most often applied to whirling air created by the swift rising of warm air from near the surface of the earth. Whirlwinds include the "dust devils" that may be seen moving across a field or along a dirt road on a hot day, and the waterspouts of tropical seas.
