cajú rains

In northeast Brazil, light showers occurring in October.

The rainy season in Brazil normally begins in December and lasts until April or May; then follows a dry season until the rains at the end of the year. In October of most years, however, there will be local showers known as chuvas de cajú (cashew rains), so-called because they occur at the time of blossom of the cashew tree.
