BeaufortScale0Calm, Sea like a mirror (0-1 mph; 0-1 kts)
BeaufortScale1Light Air, Ripples with the appearance of scales are formed but without foam crests (1-3 mph; 1-3 kts)
BeaufortScale2Light Breeze, Small wavelets, still short but more pronounced. Crests have glassy appearance and do not break (4-7 mph; 4-6 kts)
BeaufortScale3Gentle Breeze, Large wavelets. Crests begin to break. Foam of glassy appearance. Perhaps scattered white horses (8-12 mph; 7-10 kts)
BeaufortScale4Moderate Breeze, Small waves, becoming larger. Fairly frequent white horses (13-18 mph; 11-16 kts)
BeaufortScale5Fresh Breeze, Moderate waves, taking more pronounced long form, many white horses are formed (19-24 mph; 17-21 kts)
BeaufortScale6Strong Breeze, Large waves begin to form; the white foam crests are more extensive everywhere (25-31 mph; 22-27 kts)
BeaufortScale7Near Gale, Sea heaps up and white foam from breaking waves begins to be blown in streaks along the direction of the wind (32-38 mph; 28-33 kts)
BeaufortScale8Gale, Moderately high waves of greater length; edges of crests begin to break into spindrift. Foam is blown in well-marked streaks along the direction of the wind. (39-46 mph; 34-40 kts)
