Give a geographical reason:
Temperatures are high in the pre-monsoon season in the equatorial region in the northern Indian ocean.
- During the pre-monsoon season, when the summer solstice (June 21st) is approaching, the temperatures generally increase, as the sun shines vertically on `23 1/2` North, Tropic of Cancer.
- They are generally much higher in the southern portion closer to the equator. This is the northern portion of the Indian Ocean.
- Therefore, temperatures are high in the pre-monsoon season in the equatorial region in the northern Indian Ocean.
