If a gust is forecast, a range of crosswind components (XW) will be listed.
The first value is based on the sustained wind speed, the second value is based on the forecast gust speed.
Headwind components (HW) are based on the forecast sustained wind speed.
999° indicates a forecast variable wind. In this case the speed is set to zero such that crosswind/headwinds are zero.
