Because of India’ s size, its climate depends not only on the time of year, but also the location. In general, temperatures tend to be cooler in the north, especially between September and March. The south is coolest between November to January. In June, winds and warm surface currents begin to move northwards and westwards, heading out of the Indian Ocean and into the Arabian Gulf . This creates a phenomenon known as the south-west monsoon, and it brings heavy rains to the west coast.

In addition to the two monsoons, there are two other seasons, spring and autumn.
