Winters are dry in India because _________.


ANSWER

Winds are from land to sea


SOLUTION
Winters are dry in India because winds are from land to sea.
It experiences a dry season because during the winter the monsoon winds retreat and it moves in the south-east direction. This is due to the change in the pressure conditions caused by the shifting of direct sun rays towards the equator from the Tropic of Cancer. This lowers the temperature of the subcontinental landmass that results in the differential heating of the land and the adjoining water bodies like Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean. High-pressure areas are formed over the landmass. The wind direction is reversed and moves in the south-east direction towards the Bay of Bengal.
