In this letter, we study the scaling properties of multi-year observed and atmospheric model-generated wind time series. We have found that the extended self-similarity holds for the observed series, and remarkably, the scaling exponents corresponding to the mesoscale range closely match the well-accepted inertial-range turbulence values. However, the scaling results from the simulated time series are significantly different.
