    Description

    Humidity patterns near the 500- to 1,000-meter level on California's coastal mountains often show an anomolous decrease in the moisture content at night and early morning. A study in the Santa Ana mountains suggests that nighttime downslope winds provide the most satisfactory explanation for the decrease in moisture because of their effect on the marine layer.
