simulating wind over terrain

i am thinking of using openfoam to simulate wind flow over terrain (to predict wind pattern at sailing events venues).
the method i thought of using is by inserting boundary conditions for different velocity and direction cases, running for a few hours and look at the stabilized wind.
1. do you think its possible
2. i am thinking of using only pressure and velocity field, no temperature, will the results be too distorted?
3. how do i generate my mesh?
4. just an attempt, has anyone done this before?

have u tried the actuator disk tutorial in 1.7 wind solver??
It can be found here :
it has simulation of 2 wind turbines on 2 hills with wind blowing.
