I had to look up the Beaufort scale to see what wind speed it is. According to Beaufort scale - Wikipedia it shows a wind speed of 19–24 mph or 29–38 km/h yes it is at the top of the limit for the spark, but definitely doable if you are smart about it - Flying upwind and having room to land downwind if need be.

The other day as Hurricane Delta was approaching land west of New Orleans, I was flying with near tropical storm conditions approaching my area. There were a few times the drone would get pushed back during some strong gusts, but I had the room for cushion. Plenty of room to land and kept constant VLOS.
