Wind Speed Map by Zip Code

Get wind speed map by zip code or postal code

Since a ZIP code (or postal code) is not an exact site location, the wind speed map needs extra information to recognize this is a zip code. Using the SkyCiv Wind Speed Map, users can still enter their sites’ zip codes to get wind speeds and pressures.

To search a zip code for design wind speeds, you will need to first zoom into a city-level area of your country. You can zoom in to any part of the map. In this example, we are searching for a zip code for Champaign, Illinois (61820):
