Conditions of sea water on beaches in Turkey
Now in the beaches in Turkey, the water temperature is varied. In addition to frankly very cold places, there are some where swimming can be more or less comfortable.
The water temperature in Turkey has increased both over the past 10 days and over a month.
The trend can be seen on the graph. It shows the change in average sea surface temperature over the past two months.
For the two most popular locations for swimming in Turkey, the graphs of changes in the average water temperature throughout the year are as follows:
We process, analyze and store data for every beach and city in Turkey. Below is a table with current weather data and trends in some places of the country.
Climate in Turkey
Turkey is in Europe. The country is washed by four seas, such as the Black Sea, Sea of Marmara, Mediterranean Sea, Aegean Sea. Turkey is a large resort country and has a long coastline. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we track 147 settlements and resorts.
Due to the large area and length of the territory of Turkey, five climatic zones can be found here. More than 50% of the country's territory lies in the subtropical Mediterranean climate, characterized by hot summers (average temperature from + 23°C to + 33°C) and warm winters (from + 13°C to + 15°C). Precipitation is up to 1200 mm, mainly on the slopes of the mountains and mainly in the autumn-winter period. In Istanbul and Antalya, these characteristics are most pronounced - from + 5°C in January to + 25°C in July, almost no rain in the summer and wet foggy winters. In the western regions of the Anatolian Highlands, the climate is more continental - the temperature in winter often drops to -4°C, in summer the air warms up to + 37°C. The temperature in Ankara, for example, ranges from -2°C in winter to + 30°C in summer. At the same time, precipitation falls noticeably more often than on the Mediterranean coast (from 400 to 800 mm per year, mainly in winter), although summers are also arid (the rainy season falls on November - March). The center of the country and the region around Lake Van already have all the signs of a continental climate - in central and eastern Anatolia, summers are hot and dry (from + 24°C in May to + 42°C in July), and winters are cold (-2-16°C ) and snow. Peak precipitation in these areas occurs in autumn and spring. The Armenian plateau already has a pronounced temperate mountain climate with large temperature differences during the day (in autumn and spring - up to 20 degrees!). Summer is warm (the average July temperature is + 18°C, in the intermontane basins - up to + 26°C) and very sunny, but the winter is very severe by local standards - in January, with an average temperature of about -8°C, freezing to - 15°C and even -24°C in strong winds. The average annual rainfall is 400-700 mm, and a significant part of them falls in the winter period in the form of snow, which does not melt up to four months a year (glaciers remain on the peaks of Ararat almost all year round). The Black Sea coast belongs to the transition zone from temperate to subtropical. This is the wettest part of the country, especially its northeastern regions, and the coolest of the coastal ones - in summer the temperature here ranges from + 16°C to + 32°C, in winter it often drops below + 6°C. At the same time, unlike other regions of the country, precipitation (up to 1000 mm in the western part and up to 2500 mm in the east) is distributed evenly throughout the year, and heavy prolonged rainfall does not surprise anyone. The Aegean and Mediterranean coasts are noticeably warmer and drier than the Black Sea coast. It is dominated by a typical subtropical Mediterranean climate with dry and hot summers (average July temperature around + 25°C, January + 7-10°C) and warm, humid winters. The average annual rainfall is up to 500 mm, however, in the mountainous regions of the Western Taurus and Uludag, it drops to 1500 mm, mainly in winter.
