Wild About Weather!

rainLook at this cool picture! When moist air meets a mountain, the moist air is forced upward.  As the air rises, it cools and forms clouds.  The clouds cannot hold all the water vapor, so it rains or snows!  As the air flows over the mountaintop and down the other side, it becomes warmer and drier. Where in our country does this often happen? Let me know and earn a star!
