api.met.no provides wind speed and wind direction in their locationforecast 
API (the one KWeatherCore uses).

The BBC RSS used by the Plasma weather dataengine also includes this data 
(both for the current weather and for the forecast days), but the Plasma 
widget does not display it for the forecast days (only the current data, in 
the top left). So that is a client-side limitation, not a data source
