speed can be measured in miles per hour, kilometres per hour and by
knots. The wind force can be identified using the Beaufort scale,
which divides wind speeds into 12 forces. Force 0 means calm, Force
4 is a moderate breeze; Force 8 is a gale, while the maximum is hurricane
wind speed is measured using an anemometer. Most weather stations
measure wind speed using a spinning cup anemometer, which rotates
depending on the wind.
