Caption: The Bora is a wind that originates high in cold mountain areas. The air flows downward and warms according to the Ideal Gas Law, but is so cold so start with, that it remains much colder than the air at the base of the mountains. The Bora wind in this photo originated in the mountains surrounding Glacier Bay, Alaska, and created a condensation cloud as it passed over the relatively warm ocean waters offshore.
