Wind and Beginner's Precision Rifle.

I've been trying to learn the ropes of precision rifle shooting, but I think I may be hitting a wall. Much of the instructional stuff I've looked at talks about the high end of wind speed being around 10-15 mph. Where I shoot 20+mph with gusts even higher are not uncommon.

Given the current ammo situation I am trying to make my practice as efficient as possible. Is it even worth trying on days where it is particularly windy? Or would it be just be better to wait for days when the wind is more favorable until I have a solid base then attempt to deal with the higher wind speeds?

For example the other day, it started getting gusty while I was trying to see the mirage, no gusts and I could see it but when it really started going I couldn't see it anymore.
