  • The withdrawal of the rainstorm starts in northwestern provinces of India by right on time September. By mid-October, it pulls out totally from the northern portion of the landmass. 
  • The withdrawal from the southern a big part of the landmass is genuinely quick. By right on time
    December, the storm has removed from the remainder of the country.

There are two seasons which are classified as monsoons

  1. Retreating/Post Monsoons (The Transition Season): In this season Monsoons becomes more fragile in the Northern area from mid-October to November. During the days, there is a climb in temperature and stickiness known as ‘October Heat’. The sky turns out to be clear and the temperature begins increasing. As a rule, it is more sultry during the day and the evenings are cooler.. By mid-October, the temperature decreases quickly in North India.
  2. Advancing Monsoon (The Rainy Season): In this season By early June, the low-pressure condition over the northern fields strengthens. It draws in, the exchange winds of the southern hemisphere. As these winds blow over warm seas, they bring abundant dampness to the subcontinent. These breezes are solid and blow at a normal speed of 30 km each hour. Except for the extreme north-west, the rainstorm winds cover the country in about a month.
