Period each year during which there is little precipitation. In tropical climates, e.g. over much of India, the dry period is often in the winter season. In very low latitudes, two dry seasons may occur each year, between the northward and southward passage of the equatorial rains. In subtropical, Mediterranean, and west-coast climates, the dry season is in the summer.
