Both highs are associated with a weather phenomenon called “foehn”, German for “hairdryer”, which occur all over the world when air is forced over steep terrain. When winds blow over the Antarctic Peninsula’s high mountains, it can produce a warming, drying “foehn effect” on the other side, which can cause temperatures to soar by 20-30C for hours or days at a time.
