Amarillo Is Still The Windiest City In The United States
I don't know that this is something to be proud of, but it does explain why so many wind generators are being built here around Amarillo. Once again The Weather Channel (using data from the NOAA National Climatic Data Center) has declared Amarillo to be the windiest city in the United States. The figures in the chart above represent the average wind speed for the entire year. Amarillo averaged a full 1 mph above the second place city (Rochester, Minnesota).
