First, understand how winds become monsoon.

A monsoon means a change in the direction of winds in the season. In india, pakistan and Bangladesh, during summer, hot air starts rising above the ground, due to which low-pressure areas start forming in the land areas. On the contrary, thehigh-pressure area starts forming in the sea because it is colder there than on land. Around May-June, these winds start increasing in low-pressure areas. These winds also bring with them the moisture of the sea. These are called monsoon winds. In india, these winds come from two directions. South-west and south-east.

How does monsoon reach India?

South-west monsoon arrives in india, which first hits the coasts of Kerala. According to the Meteorological Department, if 2.4 mm of rain is recorded for 2 consecutive days after May 10 at 9 out of 14 weather stations in kerala, lakshadweep and Karnataka, then it is considered as the entry of monsoon.  A monsoon is a system of seasonal winds that carries hot and humid air towards cold continents.
