Tomorrow, there is supposed to be heavy wind. I have a rain coat and safety glasses. I could also put on my rain pants. Would this help keep the wind out?

Yes, this will help keep the wind out, most breathable (or even better if not very breathable) rain gear will help protect against the wind.

Sorry, I’ve been behind on my reading. In my experience, clothing and equipment are less a concern than dealing with traffic. Wear whatever is appropriate for the temperature and precipitation conditions, aside from the wind. But you have to judge wind direction relative to both where you are on the road, and where vehicles of whatever size might get pushed. Their direction may not be fully under driver control. Mostly it’s increased vigilance, and accepting that things will happen that are neither your nor driver intent.
