 for east wind
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :

  east wind
      n 1: a wind from the east [syn: east wind, easter,
           easterly]

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  East wind
     the wind coming from the east (Job 27:21; Isa. 27:8, etc.).
     Blight caused by this wind, "thin ears" (Gen. 41:6); the
     withered "gourd" (Jonah 4: 8). It was the cause and also the
     emblem of evil (Ezek. 17:10; 19:12; Hos. 13:15). In Palestine
     this wind blows from a burning desert, and hence is destitute of
     moisture necessary for vegetation.
