Temporal wind variability is examined from the standpoint of using wind speed as the independent variable since correlations of wind variabilities with height show no significant values. Data from ballistic tests made at Ft Huachuca, Arizona, are analyzed to formulate equations for variabilities of zone and ballistic winds for time intervals of 2 to 8 hours. The equations involve not only the square root of the time similar to earlier investigations, but also the mean wind speed. Analysis of the Meppen, West Germany data is added to extend the time lag to 1 hour and to confirm the validity of the formula for Western Europe.
