Köppen Classification: Tropical Monsoon Climate

Tropical monsoon climates have monthly mean temperatures above 18°C (64°F) in every month of the year and feature wet and dry seasons, as Tropical savanna climates do.

This climate has a driest month which nearly always occurs at or soon after the "winter" solstice for that side of the equator.
