My first guess was high. Well, seems the weatherman is always talking about 15-30mph winds!
I think weathermen here are usually spouting, '15mph winds with gusts to 25 & 30 mph'.

As to the average wind speed, you're probably mostly driving during the day.
Here in N. Central SD, wind speed at night is usually 3-8 miles less than afternoon wind speed.
