Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 7: Mountain Weather High mountain ranges form barriers across the land. All over the world, heavy rainfall is found on the windward slopes of mountains - slopes that have the wind blowing towards them. The leeward side of the mountains, where the wind is blowing away, receives much less rain. Air cools as it rises, so the higher the mountain, the colder the weather at its peak. This is why high peaks are covered in snow, even in the hottest parts of the world.
