    In a rain shadow it's warm and dry. On the other side of the mountain, it's wet and cool. When air mass moves from a low elevation to a high elevation, it expands and cools. This air forms clouds, which drop rain and snow, as it rises up a mountain. After the air mass crosses over the peak of the mountain and starts down the other side, The air warms up and the clouds dissipate. That means there is less rainfall.
