Recap: wind and wind shear have important effects on the way an updraft behaves. If there is little wind shear, updrafts rise vertically. If wind changes speed with height, but keeps the same direction (speed shear), updrafts become tilted. If winds also change direction with height (directional shear), updrafts may start to rotate.
