Yet these sectors due to the influence of the Mediterranean climate, terrestrial facilities does not as severe as in Central Anatolia.
The warmest month average coastal 27-28 ° C, 23-25 ° C in the inner parts, the coldest month average around 10 ° C, while the inner parts of the coast goes down to 1.5 to 2 ° C.

Again, here is the highest point in the average temperature of Turkey, Mersin city center environment at 22 ° C. The temperature of the year.
Air from the south and southeast Mediterranean Region is often under the influence of air masses and fronts. Also attached to them orographic precipitation (depending on altitude) or frontal. The amount of rainfall and humid winds that usually forms the mountains stretch the surface of open positions, ie, depends on bakılarına. The coastal areas, exposure conditions, depending on the amount of average annual precipitation falls 700-1300 mm, this value is around 400 mm inland. Which usually feature a Mediterranean climate dominated by winter precipitation in the region.

Yöresi'nde the higher parts of the mountains and lakes in winter snowfalls are effective, lasts all winter frost immediately. Although inland coastal summer droughts are not as severe.
Prevailing winds in the region are mostly northern winds. However, the wind regime, according to the topographic conditions and local changes in sea komşuluğuna suffers. Type the directional winds that usually work in the western and southern coasts from time to time at sea and land breezes are effective.
