Western New York to central Texas, Windy and cold

We are currently close to Buffalo New York, and must go to central Texas. As soon as possible. Mother-in-law fell and broke her arm, 86 and alone. Waiting for the cold front to lift. My question is how bad is driving In the wind over 10 miles an hour? And also in below freezing temperatures? This is only my second trip. My first was 600 miles, this one is 1600. Any advice would be helpful. Weather underground shows my best bet is Monday the 27th, when the only Wind I will encounter is 13 then 8 in Pennsylvania, Beyond that, it looks quite calm. Just freezing or below freezing mornings. Thank you in advance

Wind direction matters. Head or tailwind, no worries. Side wind is what matters. Personally, I stay off the road in anything 25 mph sustained or more. If you do get into severe conditions;ie crosswinds that start pushing you around, simply slow down and you can more easily control the rig. Hope this helps. Safe trip.

Unfortunately, I have lots of experience driving in wind. I park it when it exceeds 20 mph.. Gusts around 10-15 are no big deal, especially if they are head or tail winds. More problematic and straining, are winds coming from your left or right.

Thanks to those that responded. While looking at the wunderground Site We have moved the departure date To the 29th Should be clear but cold, low wind, south direction. Question is, which highway is best I 40 through Kentucky Tennessee and Arkansas. Or I 70
Through Indiana , Missouri and Oklahoma? Thanks again for your responses
