How can mountain barriers affect rainfall?

This has to do with geography

    Mountains block rain, and generate rain (or snow) as air masses rise to (try to) go over the mountains, and they also create low-rainfall regions on the opposite side called rain shadows. These situations are not absolute; a downwind rain shadow area can receive abundant rain and snow in certain circumstances, such as the upslope conditions in the Rocky Mountain Front around Denver, Colorado.
