mountain，which sometime has problems with flooding．Some of the clouds pass over the mountain but there is little rain in them．
In July and August，winds blow from G towards the mountain．They pass over a wide desert，where it is always very hot．The winds become hot and dry．They rise when they meet the mountain．They do not form clouds because there is no moisture in the hot air．
