Posted: Wanting to spin some fire tonight real bad but I can't tell if it's too windy. Right now my weather report is saying there is a south wind of 16mph. Is that too high a winds? This is going to be my first burn at home so I'm not sure (normally I spin on the weekends with a troop of people). Any idea?
Generally its less a case of how safe it is and more can you keep the wicks lit! Give it a go if you're a confident spinner. That said, be careful to spin off properly as a burning bit of fuel can go a long way in high wind...

a good breeze can result in awesome burnoffs if you do staff just keep the wind to your back so the fire streams forwards
I wouldn't try any slow spinning in a high wind but 16mph shouldn't be too mad as long as you play safe and as advised spiin off properly.
A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
