The foehn wind occurs in the presence of a strong synoptic-scale flow that develops across mountain ranges, such as the Alps. These particular wind events strongly influence air quality, air temperature and humidity. The characteristics of foehn are highly dependent on local topography, which makes it hard to predict.
