The 4th line down on the left is WSP.  This is the WIND SPEED for each hour of the day.  This lists the forecasted WIND SPEED for each hour for the next 24 hours.

Next line is WGS (Wind Gust Speed).  If no significant wind gusts are expected, “NG” (No gusts) is indicated otherwise the speed of the forecast wind gusts are given in knots.


Decoding is self-explanatory.
