South Turkey - When does the weather improve?

Basically we're wondering when to head back up there again, we'd like to spend some more leisurely time there.

Is March likely to get many of the high gusting winds and rain storms they had this January? We only managed to save the tent from destruction by a whisker on the way down. The poles were bending like cooked spahetti.
Mild days of 23C would soften us up for alternating days of storms.

The weather here is improving by the day. March is one of the best months to be in Turkey as it's far more settled. Night-time temperatures are also beginning to rise slightly now.

It starts to get warmer in mid March and later. You can even swim through tge end of March, but only at South like Antalya, Alanya, Kemer, Fethiye, Marmaris and around.

Thanks for the info.

Sounds like mid March would be the more stable bet.

Does anyone have a similar link for the Balkans. I'm touring from Albania up to the Czech republic next April and am keen to know what to expect.

I was in Assos last year around April May, and it was extremely hot.
