OK, I'll play, so let's say you estimate this before launch because you know the potential maximum wind speed, the estimated max altitude and the rate of descent. Since you can calc all this up front, why would you launch? The suggested scenario also doesn't account for weather-cocking due to the lower level winds (likely to exist), hence the distance downrange the rocket goes into the wind, the reduced max altitude from angling over, etc., which can change the dynamics quite a bit as well. Besides, once you are outside of your field dimension, you're all too often screwed. From past (personal) experience, when you fly in high wind conditions, rockets tend to end up in...trees...on roofs...on power lines...in a creek. Been there, done that. Part of flying is knowing when not to fly. Just sayin'.
