Why do clouds form near mountains?
|Q:||Ask a Question about Why do clouds form near mountains?|
As it rises, the air becomes cooler and the moisture in the air condenses to form water droplets, resulting in the formation of clouds. This explains why there is often high rainfall and snow in mountainous regions.
As winds laden with water vapor are blown towards mountains, they are forced to rise and the temperature drops.
The water condenses into clouds at these higher altitudes. This is why mountain peaks are often seen to be surrounded by layers of cloud.
