Turkey Weather in December
What’s the weather like in Turkey in December?
Turkey is a rare transcontinental country as it sits in both Asia and Europe. This means it’ll have different weather depending on where you are going. Temperatures are lowest across most of the country in December, although you’ll find it’s still nice and mild. Destinations on the Aegean and Mediterranean coast have Mediterranean weather with the amount of rain peaking around this time. You’ll find things are wettest on the Black Sea coast while there’s less rain on the Sea of Marmara.
The average high in the popular resort of Antalya, on the south coast, is 16ºC in December. You’ll still be able to soak up some sun in the day, but things can get quite chilly in the evenings when it can cool to 7ºC. The sea temperature’s 19ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 246mm of rain over 13 days, and you can expect ten hours of daylight with five hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be low. Sunset’s around 4.45pm.
