People often ask us what the weather in Turkey is like. There is no straightforward answer to that question. The Turkish climate is as diverse as the country with significant differences between the regions.

As a rule of thumb, count on dry and hot summers, almost all over Turkey, except maybe along the northeast coast. Other than that, Turkey has a continental climate inland, so expect snow and cold in winter and relatively cool nights, even in the height of summer. Along the coast, the climate is mild, with slightly higher temperatures on the Mediterranean.

Apart from a few exceptions and microclimates, you’ll find a regional climate map of Turkey below. Just click on the area you are planning to visit to be directed to the weather statistics for each region in Turkey.

High Mountains

The high mountains are not a particular region in Turkey. We’ve colored the regions with mostly high mountains green in our climate map of Turkey, but this type of weather applies to any area where the altitude exceeds 2.000m. Think of places like Uludağ or Olympus (not colored green on the map), or Ağrı – Mount Ararat and the Taurus Mountains in the southwest. Here you are dealing with an Alpine climate with significantly lower temperatures as the altitude increases.

This is the current weather in Ağrı – Mount Ararat. Click on the . . . below the temperatures to see a 7-day forecast.

Eastern Plateau

The eastern plateau endures a rather severe climate. The combination of higher altitudes ranging from 1.200 to 1.600m and the closeness to Russia, makes this one of the coldest areas in Turkey. There is a difference between the Lake Van area, and the rest of the eastern plateau. Despite the altitude of 1.600m above sea level, the presence of the large lake tempers the climate. That is why we’ll serve you with 2 statistics, Van, and Erzurum.

People often ask us what the weather in Turkey is like. There is no straightforward answer to that question. The Turkish climate is as diverse as the country with significant differences between the regions.

As a rule of thumb, count on dry and hot summers, almost all over Turkey, except maybe along the northeast coast. Other than that, Turkey has a continental climate inland, so expect snow and cold in winter and relatively cool nights, even in the height of summer. Along the coast, the climate is mild, with slightly higher temperatures on the Mediterranean.

Below you will find the weather statistics for each region in Turkey, just click on the + sign to open the right one. If you prefer to use a map with that, please view this page on your tablet, laptop or desktop.

High Mountains

The high mountains are not a particular region in Turkey. We’ve colored the regions with mostly high mountains green in our climate map of Turkey, but this type of weather applies to any area where the altitude exceeds 2.000m. Think of places like Uludağ or Olympus (not colored green on the map), or Ağrı – Mount Ararat and the Taurus Mountains in the southwest. Here you are dealing with an Alpine climate with significantly lower temperatures as the altitude increases.

This is the current weather in Ağrı – Mount Ararat. Click on the . . . below the temperatures to see a 7-day forecast.

Eastern Plateau

The eastern plateau endures a rather severe climate. The combination of higher altitudes ranging from 1.200 to 1.600m and the closeness to Russia, makes this one of the coldest areas in Turkey. There is a difference between the Lake Van area, and the rest of the eastern plateau. Despite the altitude of 1.600m above sea level, the presence of the large lake tempers the climate. That is why we’ll serve you with 2 statistics, Van, and Erzurum.

This is the current weather in Van. Click on the . . . below the temperatures to see a 7-day forecast.
