This study investigates mountain effects on a frontal system in three dimensions. A numerical hydrostatic primitive-equation model is employed. The frontal system is developed in the model from the most unstable Eady wave in a baroclinic state and is then introduced into a new model domain that contains mountain ridges of different sizes, shapes and orientations.
