a south facing mountain
I think you have just discovered why Wales and the west of Scotland and Ireland are so green: something to do with orographic cloud forming on the mountains. It gets really spectacular in Norway and New Zealand, with great torrents of fresh water falling back into the sea, and all driven by the sun and wind. Since the prevailing ocean wind is generally westerly, east coastal mountains are somewhat less effective, but the general principle of evaporation, convection and precipitation works everywhere to some extent.
