How does Wind speeds change as a function of elevation?
You mean other than by friction with with the ground?
higher is faster
I know hurricane hunter aircraft use a correction factor
but have no idea what the exact numbers are

Why the sudden change above 10km?
So I can expect there to be only a marginal increase (like <5%) in wind speeds at an elevation of around 300 ft?
