Homeschool help weather around mountains

Local News

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — Meteorologist Melissa Thomas takes us on a tour of weather around a certain landscape that Florida does not have, mountains! Rising air cools and sinking air warms, and these aspects of moving air contribute to unique weather around mountainous terrains. The cooling rising air, condenses into cloud and rains, then the sinking air dries out even more and warms, so there is very little cloud coverage and rain on the leeward side of mountains for the most part. Various aspects of the sinking dry and warm air also create fire risks for the land at the leeward base of mountains.
