English term or phrase: plugs in a weather position
Electrical summation:

If the plugs are in a weather position they must be able to be locked into position [as per Hubble Clipsal type].

In a marine glossary I’ve found something like this:
Weather – Upwind Opposite of lee. The weather side of a ship is that which is facing into the wind.

But there is nothing about a plug. Can you explain, what it can mean?

agree  Marcella Lang: a plug is connected into a socket. Generically these are connectors. Whether in a marine environment or not, anything (particularlu electrical connections) that is exposed to the weather need to be protected.
