Monsoons are characterized by a reversal in wind direction, with winds blowing from the southwest during the summer months and from the northeast during the winter months. These winds carry moisture from the Indian Ocean, resulting in heavy rainfall in countries like India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.

The heavy rain brought by monsoons can also lead to flooding and other natural disasters.
