    I actually think there are 2 seasons. A wet season and a dry season.

    I think no distinct dry reason along the intertropical convergence zone

    There are general rules & exceptions:
    GENERAL RULE:
    Along a slice of 10° latitude (5° North & 5°South of the Equator) there's only one season with rains almost every day and temps.on average ~25°C

    EXCEPTION:
    East Africa:Tanzania & Kenia.Due to altitude and currents of air dinamics.
