When I first moved to Florida from up north ...
Somebody warned me to watch out for the monsoons.
Fifteen years later, I'm still not sure if they meant the giant afternoon thunderstorms or were erroneously referring to hurricanes instead. Not once on the local weather channel have I ever heard the meteorologist call any storm or season in Florida a monsoon.
Nor can I find the term monsoons in any of my Florida weather books.
Could it be that they simply do not exist?
