January 26, 2016 Leave a Comment Palisades Math 2 When air sinks, it warms up and loses moisture. When air rises, it cools and condenses into moisture. With a west wind blowing over the Palisades, it has a drying effect here over at Wave Hill. And even when temperatures are in the 20s with heavy snow, not far to the Northwest and the Catskills, it can be 50 degrees and sunny at Wave Hill, thanks to the downsloping effect. If the normal high temperature in January a Wave Hill is 38.7 degrees, and that is 25,3 degrees warmer than a normal January temperature in Cooperstown, what is the normal January high temperature in Cooperstown?
