WINDS DUE TO LOCAL COOLING AND HEATING

In the next sections we discuss tertiary circula-tions due to local cooling and heating effects. Under normal circumstances, these winds attain only light to moderate wind speeds; however, winds often occur in and near mountain areas that have undergone dramatic changes in normal character. At times, mountain areas tend to fun-nel winds through valleys and mountain passes. This funneling effect produces extremely dangerous wind speeds.
