    I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    We normally say "high wind" or "strong wind".
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    High, strong, calm, blustery, warm, frigid, cold, gusty, turbulent, battering, deafening, sharp, cool, tropic, brisk, freezing, Chinook (Usually related to the American west; a strong, warm wind occurring in the winter), balmy, blizzard-force, arctic, gale-force, heavy, and wintry.

    Can "violent" be added onto the above list?
