The relationship between peak gust wind speed and fastest 1 min (or fastest-mile) wind speed occurring within the same hour has been studied for five stations in the United States. For each station at least ten years of observations were used to investigate the relationship and its variation seasonally, diurnally and with different concomitant weather events. As a result it appears that peak gust wind data could be used to estimate the fastest 1 min wind for stations where the latter is not available.
