    Finally, there is the inconsistency that is created when the isobars do not follow the smooth, tidy lines shown on the weather charts. There will be local areas where the lines are temporarily closer together or wider apart and this is likely to cause increases or decreases in the general wind strength. THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE ISOBARS CAN OFTEN VARY CONSIDERABLY IN QUITE LOCAL AREAS, LEADING TO LOCAL CHANGES IN WIND STRENGTH. 18 WHEN THE AIRFLOW IS BROKEN It is not too difficult to picture what happens when the regular flow of air generated by the wind encounters something in its path.

    23 THE BEAUFORT SCALE The Beaufort Scale works in two ways. If you know the wind speed, it will indicate the sort of sea conditions that might be associated with that wind speed. Alternatively, if you know the sea conditions being experienced, then it will give you an idea of the associated wind speed. It presupposes that you know one of these two factors, the wind strength or the sea conditions, and it enables you to gauge the other. So the Beaufort Scale is really a translation table, which has alternative uses in port and out at sea.

    To enable you to relate the distance between the isobars to the associated wind strength, the weather chart is provided with a scale. To find the related wind strength, measure the distance between the isobars in your location and read off the wind strength that relates that distance to your latitude. You can also get an indication of the expected wind strength from the isobars. The air will tend to flow from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure. However, it does not flow in a straight line because of the rotation of the earth, and the flow is more like water going down a plughole.
