Not an expert, but do the two terms relate?

Dammit. I really thought 'carrot was going to use "adiabatic" in a sentence. 
I've had a $15 bet on it for 7 years now. "Orographic lift" would be good 
for $12, but if he'd said instead, "dry adiabatic lapse rate" -- I'da been 
on my way to a steak dinner tonight.

The luck.

If you look closely at the animated current radar loop (7:12pm eastern) over 
central PA where the Alleghenies bend from a north-south angle to an 
east-west angle, you can actually see the heavy yellow bands of rainfall 
following the topography. Very impressive visible orographic lift for such 
relatively low ridges....
