Is it safe to charge your vehicle in windy conditions?

IF you mean that because of the wind there could be a power loss and you wonder if that's a problem: you will be fine. A power loss is not a problem, the car is well equipped to manage that.

concern about of the voltage or amps might spike.
If you'd like to see an example of a Tesla handling a voltage swing, I did a video last week charging my car with a portable generator. You can just skip to 9:00 to see the car respond to a voltage drop.

TL;DW - The bottom line is that twice during that charge session the car handled voltage issues gracefully. Once when the generator wasn't supplying enough power (9:00) and then again when the generator ran out of gas (16:00).
