Basically velocity is speed in a specific direction. So just the speed of the person when waking in the wind with a specific direction.

A wind sock is a tool that shows what direction the wind is blowing in. While relative wind speed can also be determined with a wind sock, a more accurate tool for measuring wind speed is the anemometer.

The speed and direction of a tornado can be determined using Doppler radar by measuring how far the tornado moves between sweeps and in what direction.

An anemometer measures the wind speed, and a windvan measures wind direction.

The wind direction is measured with wind socks or wind vanes; the wind speed is measured with anemometers.
