3. Wind Speed
Average wind speed and peak gust speed in meters per second (15-minute values) measured at 10 meters above the ground. Wind speed is highly variable but tends to be greater during the day, during certain weather events (e.g., storms, frontal passages), and during the winter months. At this station, peak 1-second wind gust speeds (in each 15-minute period) are typically about 2.8 times the average wind speed.
