wi fi signal blown away

I had this same problem. Put my router on my chimney for better signal strength but the wind kept blowing in down the chimney and it would end up in the basement. Not much of a signal from down there.

Maybe not that crazy

I don't have cable TV but use a small UHF/VHF antenna. When the wind blows hard, a large tree in front of the house sways back and forth and my TV picture becomes distorted. I suspect the tree is in the straight line of sight from the transmission tower.
