Anabatic wind.
A local wind that flows up the side of the valleys resulting from increased heating along the valley walls. Often anabatic wind results in cumulus clouds along the ridges on either side of the valley. These winds are the opposite of katabatic winds. Anabatic winds are typically daytime winds during summer. Also referred to as valley breeze.
