Windy only visualizes the predictions of numerical weather models. Which model did you watch?
Here is the comparison between Reported wind at Springbank airport and the NAM forecasts. This does not seem so bad, 23kt forecast for 21.4kt reported but with a time shift of 48 minutes.

ECMWF is weaker with 17kt and GFS worse with 12kt.
So try which is the best model for your area.
