subtropical winds in the summer

hot
without any precipitation
Winter
sunny
warm
periods of rain.
Most places have many months of dry periods without any rainfall
winds blowing over dry land cannot pick up any moisture,
therefore no clouds will form so no rain/precipitation Most common precipitation: relief rainfall
winds have to travel over mountain ranges, and this is how relief rainfall is cerated. wet, rainy days separated by warm, dry periods
