Turkey Weather in August
What’s the weather like in Turkey in August?
With land in both Asia and Europe, Turkey’s a transcontinental country with different weather depending on where you’re going. If you’re going in August then there’ll be hot weather and not much rain across most of Turkey, particularly at the most popular holiday destinations. Places on the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts have Mediterranean weather, with August being one of the hottest months of the year. You’ll have a bit more rain on the Black Sea coast while there’s less on the Sea of Marmara.
The average high in popular Antalya on the south coast is 34ºC in August, and you won’t need many warm clothes as temperatures only drop to 21ºC at night. The sea’s perfect for swimming at 29ºC and humidity’s high. There’s just 5mm of rain and you can expect 14 hours of daylight with 12 hours of sunshine each day. Take care in the sun and apply sun cream as UV levels will be very high. Sunset’s just after 8pm at the start of the month, gradually getting earlier.
