I was looking for wind data during yesterday's storm. I found this and this, but the granularity missed the big wind showing only a gust of 25mph. I know that the airport typically has higher wind speed than here at the house being more out in the open. I had 49mph in yesterday's storm and NWS is claiming 60+mph.

Is there a better archive for METAR stations?

Thanks Jachym.

I see this as the highest:

METAR KPZQ 021515Z AUTO 32008G22KT 280V350 4SM +RA BKN024
           BKN037 OVC110 18/16 A2973 RMK AO2 T01760156=

Which would be the 25mph reading. Hmm.. maybe it was higher over here, but it is only 0.7 mile (1.1km) from me.
