(i) Seasonal reversal of wind direction over the Indian subcontinent takes place due to pressure differential. El Nino has major role to play in the seasonal reversal of wind direction over the Indian subcontinent. 

(ii) The monsoon begins from the first week of June and advances quite rapidly to cover almost the whole country by mid-July. Hence, the bulk of rainfall in India is concentrated over the months of a few months; mainly June to August. 

(iii) The Tami Nadu coast receives winter rainfall because of movement of lowpressure conditions to the Bay of Bengal. 

(iv) The Bay of Bengal is the centre of various pressure changes and hence there is always a chance of development of cyclone. Due to this, the delta region of the eastern coast is frequently struck by cyclones. 

(v) The parts fall in the rain shadow area of the Aravalli. Hence, they are drought prone.
