Is historic wind speed an average for the day/period?
This depends on which you are API referring to (hourly, or daily).
For hourly historical data:
wind_spd = An instantaneous value - Example: wind speed at 13:00.
For daily historical data:
wind_spd = Average wind speed for day.
wind_gust_spd = Max wind gust for the day.
max_wind_spd = Max 2 minute sustained wind speed during the day.
