What’s the weather like in Turkey in October?
There’s different weather around Turkey, which is a rare transcontinental country with land in both Europe and Asia. Most parts of the country enjoy warm weather in October though, while you’ll get plenty of sun at places on the popular southern Mediterranean coast.
Turkey’s Aegean and Mediterranean holiday spots enjoy hot dry summers, with rain picking up as autumn goes on in October. Mountains close to the Mediterranean coast mean the Central Anatolia Region has a continental climate, while spots on the Black Sea get more rain all year round. Places by the Sea of Marmara have weather that’s somewhere in between temperate Mediterranean and oceanic.
If you’re going to Antalya in October you’ll get an average high temperature of 26ºC, so your summer wardrobe will be perfect for the daytime. You’ll want to bring some warmer things for the evenings though as things get a bit cooler at night. The sea’s really inviting with an average temperature of 25ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from around 30% to 80%. Rain picks up as autumn goes on, with around 73mm falling across six rainy days.
During October you can expect 11 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day in Antalya. Take care of yourself in the sun as UV levels will be moderate, while sunset’s at 6.40pm at the start of the month; this is 5pm at the end of October due to the end of daylight saving.
