The hurricane of 1987 was during the night. Enough said.
I have found that true on many occasions but not all! We get nights here that are so windy it blows the roofing off the house but dies down in the daytime! Mostly the other holds true .. but now and again whooosh look out!
We get just as much wind at night as we do during the day, sometimes more. Course.....it could be cos we live on the coast. During hurricane season the winds at night can be quite fierce and you can hear the waves pounding. It can be rather frightening.
it's usually about equal here. in the winter it seems to be more windy at night
Generally you get more wind during the day, the reason why Caroline may notice more wind at night is because it is generally quieter and you may be sat at home and take more notice of it as opposed to during the day when you are busier.The winds are caused by the sun, and it's heating of the earth's surface. The warm air over the land expands and rises, and the heavier, cooler air rushes in to take its place, thus creating wind.Although if you live in the mountains, you may experiance more wind at night due to air drainage.

Enough said.That may hold true because the hurricane we had here started as mild wind in the day and by night it ripped through at more then 101 miles per hour ripping things out of the ground bursting big widows uprooting trees and flipping cars over! It was truely awesome scary event! exhilerating to!
