Monsoon Season

A monsoon is a strong wind that brings torrential rain. During the monsoon season warm air currents flow from the tropical countries. the warm air tries to push out the cool air, and the cool air tries to stay where it is. The warm air pushes so hard that it rises into the sky. There's a lot of water vapour in the warm air, so it forms more and more rain clouds. Finally the rain pours down out of those clouds. In many parts of Asia life revolves around the season of the monsoons, the winds that bring rain, Winds rise from low-pressure areas created by solar heat in tropical regions. The surrounding air moves into the low-pressure areas, and this movement produces winds, Saturated with moisture, the air rises and flows towards the polar regions. The moisture condenses in the cooler upper air and is released ad rain.
