Winter around me is windy, and since most of my riding is to work, I do a lot of windy rides. Headwinds to work and tailwinds home (my route to work is NNW). If the wind is pretty constant then in the 30s (mph) is doable and 15 mph is normal. I get the full effect of the wind, as I ride across rice fields most of the time. When there is a typhoon that is coming or just passed I usually skip though because the wind is too gusty and the direction changes often.

^Yup. I've been having all kinds of very fast segments on my way home the last two weeks with some ridiculous winds.

I had this on the way home the other day, but I wasn't able to use it to full effect.
