Jet streams are a narrow belt of high-altitude westerly winds in the troposphere with speeds varying from about 110km/hr in summer to 184km/hr in winter. The sub-tropical westerly jet stream blowing south of the Himalayas are responsible for the western cyclonic disturbances experienced in the north and north-western parts of the country during the winter months. The sub-tropical easterly jet stream blowing over peninsular India is responsible for the tropical cyclones that affect the eastern coastal regions of India during the monsoon as well as during the October to November period.
