Breezy vs Windy

I just love how NOAA has come up with 30 MPH winds as breezy , does windy start at 35 or 40 ???

Out here on the prairie, 30 mph is breezy.  We even play golf in the wind.  In MN, those wimps go in the basement because windy to them is anything over 15 mph.

In North Dakota breezy means that you can pee into it, windy means hang onto your shorts...

Breezy is typicall 15 to 25 mph

Windy is 20 to 30 mph

I don't know the explanation.  Suppose I could dig it up somewhere.
