The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) issues wind warnings with marine forecasts.
Wind warnings tell mariners of dangerous coastal and ocean conditions.
Wind warnings come in different categories.
Small boats shouldn’t be out in exposed waters in over 25 knots of wind.
Strong Wind Warning:26 to 33 knots
Gale Warning:34 to 47 knots
Storm force wind warning:48 to 63 knots
Hurrican force wind warning:64 knots or more
But what do the different categories look like?
Good question. Wind warnings use the Beaufort Scale.
