Weather Conditions in September

Since I'm intending to spend the whole of September on the far side of Instanbul, can anyone give me the general weather outlook for the region for that time of year.

Planning to visit Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iran as well so will keep the HUBB updated with any visa and carnet issues I have.

Anyone else in that part of the world at that time. Turkish mini HUBB meeting anyone?

Weather in Lebanon Syria

Hi Baswacky,

I dont know how weather is in Jordan and Iran, but I guess quite similar. Generelly speaking you dont have to expect any rain (except you are really unlucky to find a thunderstorm, but that should be welcome then...) In early September in Syria you can still find temperatures up to 40 degrees centigrade, at the coast in Lebanon up to 30. As said before no rain at all before November, even November can be dry.

In case you need further infos about the region here, just let me know. It might be that I will be still in Lebanon, so feel at my place for a short rest.

Have fun in Istanbul,

Lalli

Hi there,

We've been there from 20th of September up to 5th of October 2008 on our M/East trip.Average temperatures around 30,except Dead Sea where we found over 35.In the mountains of Jordan near Kerak Castle and all the way to Wadi Mussa the average temperature we found bellow 15 celsius.

Hope this help.

Regards,

Simon
