Turkey weather overview

Part of Turkey is in Europe but the bulk of it, Anatolia, lies in Asia. Anatolia is a high plateau with mountains to its east, north and south. The higher peaks draw snow throughout the year and the climate here contrasts with that of lower ground and coastal regions to give Turkey a wide variety of weather conditions.

The country's interior has a hot, arid summer climate and cold winters which increase in harshness the further east you go. The coasts bordering the Black Sea, the Aegean and the Mediterranean Coast have higher rainfall and warmer winters. Even between the coasts, however, conditions can vary.

The area surrounding Istanbul and the Black Sea is slightly colder in winter and rainier throughout the year than the shorelines to the west and south whose weather is more typically Mediterranean and can be hot and sticky on summer nights.

The hottest part of Turkey is the wide plain which borders Syria at the entrance to the Taurus Mountains. Here, you'll find a desert-like climate with fiercely hot summers and cold winters.

What to pack for Turkey weather

Light clothes are fine in the summer months, but in winter take very warm clothes for visiting the interior or the mountains.
