Linda Tanton writes from Baltimore: "Has Baltimore become more windy over the past 3-4 years? Seems so to me." The NWS doesn't compile annual wind data, but we have seen more wind advisories and warnings this year. A month-to-month check finds February 2009 has been the windiest month at BWI since April 2007, averaging 8.2 mph. A 40-mph gust Feb. 12 was the third-strongest since January 2007.
