Default Time Varying Inlet Conditions (Yaw)

Hello, I'm new to OpenFOAM. I'm doing work with LES on Yaw angles on a wing. I have set up and run static cases with inflow coming at 5 degrees of yaw.
However I do not know how to do vary the inlet conditions with time, so I want the simulation to start as normal with 0 yaw angle, then over a period of time to change the direction of incoming flow to 5 degrees of yaw. I don't know how to do this.
Using version 2.3.0 as that's the one on the cluster I use
Can anybody help me please?
