    dryer refers to the weather?

    Hi,

    ''Mumbai is on the west coast. The wet season is from June to September. Between November and February it is a little cooler and dryer.''

    The source: New Headway Elementry (page 75)

    As far as I know, the word dryer means a machine for drying something, so is it a typo? Isn't it supposed to be 'drier' instead?

    Thanks.
