Definition

  • Leeward slope is the opposite of a mountain opposite to where the wind is blowing

  • Windward slope is the side of a mountain which is facing into and is hit directly by prevailing winds

  • Precipitation is rain


Formation
Formation

  • Relief rain happens in areas where a line of hills run along the coast

  • When wet onshore wind meets the base of a coastal hill, it rises along the slope and cools to form clouds


Formation1
Formation

  • Precipitation then occurs on the windward slope of the hill

  • On the leeward slope, air sinks, and is warmed and further dried by compression

  • Relief rain is very dense and is a cold mixture of precipitation
