Gone With The Wind

A steady (unchanging) crosswind (90 degree angle) will push your POI off target, but your 10-inch pattern will maintain its density. If you make the proper adjustments to your POI, it will not reduce your max range.

A wind from behind generally has a negligible effect on patterns. They will be close to patterns on a calm day. Just hold on target and fire.

Shooting directly into a wind will open up patterns. An uneven/swirling wind also will reduce your pattern density. Wind gusts and variable winds make it difficult to predict the overall effect. Consider reducing your max range under these conditions.
