Squalls can create hazardous weather conditions and are of special concern for mariners and aviators, who can Album) in danger if they encounter one without adequate preparation. The causes of these sudden bursts of wind can vary, depending on the region and weather situation, and they tend to be especially common around bodies of water, because air moving over water can change quickly in behavior, Album).
Typically, one appears along with a burst of rain, snow, or hail. In lake effect squalls, seen when air moves over a lake and dumps snow or rain on the other side, the wind occurs as warm and cold air meet, leading to an increase in moisture over the lake and Album) precipitation at the other side.
Wind speeds can increase dramatically in a squall, and this may be very dangerous. For sailors, the wind can damage sails or even capsize a boat if it is forceful enough. It may also cause Album) waves to develop, swamping a watercraft and putting it at risk of sinking. Kamuy Free-Squall. Shodaime Yukikage Free-Squall. White Blaze Free-Squall. Tattoo Free-Squall.

Jul 26, Well it looks like all of my projects are going to be put on hold as far as me posting them. This is usually associated with heavy showers and possibly thunder. Sailors historically referred to cold fronts as squall lines and it is easy to see why as all the ingredients of a squall are in one place extending for many miles. We can think of gusts as turbulence often caused by obstructions in the wind, which is particularly noticeable when sailing in an offshore wind.
The gustiness can be quite extreme with rapid changes in speed and direction. However, gusts happen not just in an offshore wind, but also around clouds where there is often considerable turbulence as the wind moves vertically as well as horizontally.
This turbulence can be defined as instability in the atmosphere and, although meteorologists will define this in a number of ways, when sailing I tend to simplify it into days of no clouds or layer clouds, which indicates a stable atmosphere with low gust activity and days when we have cumulus clouds which are indicating some vertical movement in the atmosphere just watch how high gliders can fly.
The difference between gusts and squalls are therefore quite well defined, but they are not the only reasons that we can have big increases in wind over a short distance or time. Around the coast the geography can create a large increase in wind although these tend to be longer lasting, more permanent features.
Forecasts and observations will give a good indication if squalls or gusts are likely. Wind direction and cloud patterns are important — wind off the land will always give gusty conditions and the type of cloud will offer clues. Layer clouds found, for example, in the warm sector of a depression will Album) give small gusts as the atmosphere is relatively stable.
