The most prominent feature of the wind climatology in India is monsoon circulations . Winds in India are influenced by the southwest summer monsoon, which starts in May-June, when cool humid air moves towards the land and Northeast winter monsoon which starts in October, when cool dry air moves towards the ocean.
