Abstract

Observations of low air temperatures in valleys are related to the mountain wind which is primarily dependent on the large-scale topography and the slope wind into a small-scale river depression forming part of the valley floor. Uplift of cold air in the near-surface layer seems to be important for the formation of the extreme minima observed
