Gale is an open-source messaging system. It provides private messaging and public chat, uses strong end-to-end cryptography for security, and supports a distributed server network with a range of clients available. Gale is currently in early alpha testing. See the homepage for the details of its current status.
A strong current of air; a wind between a stiff breeze and a hurricane. The most violent gales are called tempests.
A moderate current of air; a breeze.
A wind of 32-63 miles per hour.
Winds with mean windspeed between 33 knots and 48 knots.
A range of winds from 34 to 47 knots (39 to 54 miles per hour); see also weather definitions
A wind of "Force 8" or above on the Beaufort Scale of Wind Force defined as strong enough to "break twigs off trees and generally impede progress".
Wind with speeds from 28 to 55 knots (52 to 102 kilometers per hour). In 1964, the World Meteorological Organization defined the categories as near gale (52 to 62 km/h), gale (63 to 74 km/h), strong gale (63 to 74 km/h), and storm (75 to 102 km/h).
The word 'gale' is used in everyday speech in a rather loose way to describe any strong wind, for example ..." it's blowing a gale outside", when it may be just a 'strong blow' in inland areas of the southern Britain. Meteorologists must work to a strict definition of a gale. For operational forecasting (UK Met Office practice) both for land and sea use, a gale [ Force 8 on the Beaufort scale ] is defined as a mean wind (over 10 minutes) of 34 knots (39mph, 63 km/hr, 17 m/s ) or more, or gusts of 43 knots (49 mph, 79 km/hr, 22 m/s) or more. This definition is also used for verifying Shipping Forecasts and Gale Warnings. Isolated gusts accompanying squalls or thunderstorms are not counted. However, for climatological purposes (i.e. post-event analysis), only the mean wind is considered, i.e. a mean wind of 34 knots or more, as specified in the Beaufort wind scale (q.v.). [ see also definitions for Severe Gale, Storm, Violent Storm and Hurricane Force.
a storm with wind speeds between 34 to 40 knots
A wind of 28 to 47 knots. An unusually strong wind. In the Beaufort wind scale, a wind whose speed is from 28 to 55 knots (32 to 63 mph) and categorized as follows: moderate gale, 28 to 33 kts. fresh gale, 34 to 40 kts.; strong gale, 41 to 47 kts.; and whole gale, 48 to 55 kts.
Acronym for the Genesis of Atlantic Lows Experiment, an extensive study of the atmospheric processes involved in the development of winter storms on the East Coast of the United States. See the GALE Web site.
Beaufort force 8. A sustained wind speed of 34 to 40 knots. Moderate high waves of greater length; edges of crests begin to break into spindrift; the foam is blown in well-marked streaks along the direction of the wind.
a strong wind moving 45-90 knots; force 7 to 10 on Beaufort scale
a wind, but an older use of the word means song
Wind speeds from 34 to 47 knots (61 to 85 km/h).
Wind speeds between 39 and 54 miles per hour.
Strong air current.
Genesis of Atmosphere Lows Experiment
a range of winds from 28 to 47 knots.
A wind between a strong breeze and a storm. A continuous wind blowing in degrees of moderate, fresh, strong, or whole gale and varying in velocity from 28 to 30 NAUTICAL MILES per hour.
A wind speed from 32 to 63 mph or 28 to 55 knots. It is classified as a storm if wind speed is from 64 to 73 mph or 56 to 64 knots.
Wind with a speed between 28 and 55 knots (32 and 63 mph); Beaufort scale numbers 7 through 10.
Wind speeds from 39 to 54 mph (34 to 47 knots).
A strong wind. A gale warning is issued for expected winds of 34 to 47 knots (65-100km/h) over the water.
Wind with a speed between 34 and 40 knots.
a storm with a wind speed between 34 to 40 knots.
Wind speeds from 39-54 miles per hour (34-47 knots).
An extratropical low or an area of sustained surface winds of 34 (39 mph) to 47 knots (54 mph).
A nautical term defining weather conditions in which wind speed ranges between 34 to 40 knots
1. In general, and in popular use, an unusually strong wind. 2. In storm-warning terminology, a wind of 28â€“47 knots (32â€“54 mph). In the Beaufort wind scale wind with a speed from 28â€“55 knots (32â€“63 mph) and categorized as follows: moderate gale, 28â€“33 knots (Force 7); fresh gale, 34â€“40 knots (Force 8); strong gale, 41â€“47 knots (Force 9); and whole gale, 48â€“55 knots (Force 10).
On the Beaufort Wind Scale wind with speeds from 28 to 55 knots (32 to 63 miles per hour). For marine interests, it can be categorized as a moderate gale (28 to 33 knots), a fresh gale (34 to 40 knots), a strong gale (41 to 47 knots), or a whole gale (48 to 55 knots). In 1964, the World Meteorological Organization defined the categories as near gale (28 to 33 knots), gale (34 to 40 knots), strong gale (41 to 47 knots), and storm (48 to 55 knots).
A gale is a very strong wind of at least 28 knots, 32 mph, or 51 km/h; and up to 55 knots, 63 mph, or 102 km/h.
