Thank you for your reply! Except the hazard wind shear may cause. What does the regulation say? Can I continue take off though the current speed is below v1, but it once reached v1 moment ago.

The theory says if you don't continue after reaching V1, you'll run off the runway end. But in a lift-killing windshear (head to tail)? You might have trouble reaching VR/V2 and getting off the runway either.

See AeroMéxico Connect Flight 2431. They tried to continue, crashed back to earth, overran the runway end anyway - amazingly with no deaths.
