The Aegean and Mediterranean coastal regions experience cool, rainy winters, and warm (often hot) dry summers, with moderate precipitation. Spring and fall are considered ideal times to visit these areas as temperatures still approach the high 70s (21°C) and rain fall amounts are low.
In contrast, the Black Sea coastal region is generally cooler throughout the year and has the heaviest rainfall in Turkey, averaging 55 inches (1,397 mm) per year.
The central Anatolian Plateau, blocked from the sea by high mountains, has very cold temperatures in the winter, and extreme, almost unbearable heat in summer. Rainfall is light here, but winter snowfalls are heavy.
The far-eastern highlands have hot, dry summers and very cold winters with heavy snowfall.
