  • Regional precipitation depends chiefly on the large scale flow and local topography. Large scale moisture influx determines the amount of moisture available for the precipitation. Topography affects two major factors in the local precipitation: Low-level vertical motion and local water vapor transport. Topography also affects partitioning the total precipitation into rain and snow since the snow line is usually lower than the peaks of major mountain ranges during wintertime.
