Windward and leeward side of a mountain?

The windward side of the mountain is where in (North America) the windward side of the mountain has an ocean climate condition and the leeward side has a dry climate. This is because of the dry air lapse rate. When a parcel of air rises it cools and when it goes down it does the opposite the parcel of air warms. So, for example, if the wind passes the windward side of the mountain it rises and cools the air around it. Therefore it will have more precipitation. Then the air rises over the mountain and the drops down and warms on the leeward side. This makes the leeward side of the mountain have a dry climate.
