What is a northeast monsoon?

Answer

The Northeast Monsoon is a season running from October to December in parts of India. It is a season with major rainfall activity in those areas.

A monsoon is a shift in wind patterns that causes different kinds of weather. In India, severe thunderstorms, hail, tornadoes and torrential rain can come with the arrival of a monsoon. A cyclone can also accompany a monsoon. Dry winters and wet summers make a good monsoon climate, and a quarter of the globe experiences this climate. Monsoons can affect and be affected by the climate of the globe. If a monsoon is heavier than normal, it can cause global teleconnections. Global teleconnections are chain reactions that cause stronger lows and more rain to form toward the east.
