a decrease in IAS and increase in rate of decent.. why would this indicate a sudden decrease in headwind component during an approach to land ?

Wind shears which cause a drop in IAS on descent are sometimes called undershoot wind shears since their effect
on a landing approach is to cause the aircraft to lose lift and descend below the intended approach path.
