When riding in the wind I do a few things. I squeeze the tank tighter with my legs, and try to keep my arms relaxed. I also try to note which direction the wind is coming from. This helps me anticipate when a gust will really hit. Example...if I'm riding in a cross wind and there are trees on both sides, it isn't bad, but knowing which direction the wind is from can help you anticipate that when the tree-line (or whatever wind block you have) ends, you can expect a rather strong gust.
I commute on days even if the wind is forecasted to be up to 25 MPH with higher gusts. I don't know if I'd ride all day in it, but I do know the wind was quite high last time I went to Leavenworth. It was picking umbrellas out of the tables.
