Turkey's Weather

By Justin Mays:

Open seas and high mountains surround Turkey, giving the country its Meditarean climate. The prevailing climate in the interior areas is relatively dry and continental. The northern oceanic areas and the southern areas have a moderate Mediterranean climate.

Turkey generally has four climate zones, and the central parts of the Anatolian Plateau have a relatively dry continental climate. The east and northeast have mountainous climates, the west and south have Mediterranean climates, and the Black Sea coast has summers. It is hot and has mild and humid winters. 

If you plan to visit this country, the best time is spring (April and May) and autumn (October and early November). In these seasons, the weather is neither too hot nor too cold. Thus, the southern regions of Turkey are visited mainly by tourists in summer and the northern and central regions in winter.
