Dictionary of botanic terminology - index of names

Synonym: Rainy season, Monsoon season, Humid season.
  One of the two seasons in tropical climates, an annually recurring period of one or more months during which no precipitations  are common; the opposite of dry season.  

The wet season, also called rainy season, is a term commonly used when describing the weather in the tropics. The year is split into the dry season and the wet season . As the name implies, nearly all the rainfall in a year occurs during the wet season. Typically, days start off hot and sunny, with humidity building during the day and culminating in large thunderstorms and torrential rain in the afternoon or evening. This promotes plant growth.
