But that depends on the specific region.
Have you heard of the Asian winter monsoon?
Of course, but it isn't usual. There are a few exceptions around. I already mentioned most of Hawaii and coastal Peru, but there are a few other scattered locations around the globe where in the tropics the winter isn't the dry season. I can think of a few more. Places in Sri Lanka have two monsoons, one in winter and one in summer in some locations, where some places only have a winter monsoon or a summer monsoon. East Africa has two rainy seasons close to the equator. Even parts of the Amazon have two rainy seasons. Ecuador does too, but it varies from east to west rather than from north to south. Closer to home, in some parts of the Caribbean such as Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire, fall and winter is the wet season. Even parts of Puerto Rico have a winter wet season.
Such areas are just exceptions though. Besides a few exceptions, the winter is the dry season in the vast majority of the tropics.
In some Indonesian countries, the “rainy season” is in fact the winter season.
I assume you mean "some Indonesian islands" or "some Southeast Asian countries" since Indonesia itself is a country? Yes, some parts of Indonesia are another exception (of note Sumatra has some really weird rainfall patterns in different regions). Besides parts of Indonesia, in that region of the world, Singapore is also technically north of the equator, but has a summer monsoon, though it's so close to the equator that it may as well be. Papua New Guinea also has places with a summer monsoon.
Such places are exceptions though.
Yeah, there’s no doubt that you guys are much better at early season cold/snow than we are. Once again, the numbers don’t lie.
I actually don't live on either coast, but in the Rocky Mountains far from any ocean. We actually "are much better at every season cold" than either Lower 48 coast. In the US, you would have to go to Alaska to see any coastal temperatures as cold as we get. When it comes to all time extremes, rather than just averages, our extreme lows compare well with those of Alaska along the Arctic Ocean. The coldest coastal official temperature in Alaska was -62 at Prudhoe Bay on 1/27/1989. In this immediate area, our coldest official temperature was -61 at Maybell on 2/1/1985. Of course places along the Arctic Ocean average colder.
Back to the original topic though, are we cheering iFred up? I would assume that he's either rolling his eyes, laughing at all of us, or preferably laughing along with us.
