Though heavy rain disrupts our daily schedule and causes much inconvenience at times, the monsoon season is always welcome.
At the start of monsoon, people extract their umbrellas, raincoats and gumboots.
Overflowing of rivers causes floods that damage property, fields and crops largely and loss of life.
In hilly areas landslides during the monsoon is very common.
On the whole the blessings of the monsoon surpass its curses and disadvantages.
The entire life on earth circles round the monsoon.
When the wet season occurs during a warm season, or summer, precipitation falls mainly during the late afternoon and early evening.
In the wet season, air quality improves, fresh water quality improves, and vegetation grows substantially, leading to crop yields late in the season.
Further, much of the total rainfall each day occurs in the first minutes of the downpour, Most places have only one wet season, but areas of the tropics can have two wet seasons, because the monsoon trough, or Intertropical Convergence Zone, can pass over locations in the tropics twice per year.
However, since rain forests have rainfall spread evenly through the year, they do not have a wet season.
