The Core Logic Windy City Ranking report, which provides a national ranking of the nation’s windiest cities, was generated by calculating the total force caused by all severe wind gusts of 60 mph or more for wind events dating back to 2006.
Core Logic assigned a numerical score from 1 to 100 on the 293 cities it analyzed with data captured at the city center plus a 10-mile radius between January 2006 and June 2015.
It also took into account the total number of wind events during this time period.
Based on these factors, Jackson topped the list with 153 wind events since January 2006 and a max wind speed of 99 mph giving it a Core Logic ranking of 95.
