What I know is, I've been to Göle 2 winters and seriously there is so ****ing absurd cold in Göle and there is no such cold like that in the capital of Ardahan Province. Once you go to the capital of Ardahan Province, the weather is seriously warmer.

I put 7 layers of clothes on my top body in Göle. And even with gloves on, I was like my hands were burning on fire seriously when I was out.

For example provincial capital of Erzincan has quite a mild winter with an elevation of 1185 metres in Eastern Turkey. But a district municipality called Otlukbeli in Erzincan Province has a winter smilar to the provincial capital of Erzurum with an elevation of 1740 metres.

Elevation changes from one place to other in Anatolia and surronding hills, mountains can also play role in climate differences. Even with small elevation differences, climate can change more than expected.


If you go to Northern Erzurum Province, it is a lot milder, winters are smilar to the provincial capital Erzincan.

If you go to Northern Muş Province, it is colder than the provincial capital of Muş and the elevation is also higher.

If you go to Northern Van Province, the climate is nothing like the provincial capital of Van. A hell lot more colder.



And Göle is the coldest district municipality ( town) in Turkey. I mention about it because it is the coldest one but I know about a lot of district municipalities in Eastern Anatolia. Not only provincial capitals like the foreign members here.

Ardahan is a very small Province and it has 6 districts municipalities with that small population, one of which is Göle. Think about large populated provinces? How many district municipalities do they have? A lot more.


And met office keeps it to provincial capitals when it comes to publishing long term averages. But daily lows and highs are available for every ****ing official weather stations.

According to the Turkish Wikipedia page.
https://tr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Göle

"It has a continental climate that is long, very hard and cold in winter, and warm and rainy in summers. In winter, the coldness drops to -30 or 35 degrees Celsius. The thickness of the snow that falls during the very harsh winter months reaches at least one meter. The lake plain, because of its pit, sometimes has foggy days during the winter. In summer, the temperature rises to 25-30 degrees Celsius."

"Kışları uzun, çok sert ve soğuk, yazları ise ılık ve yağışlı geçen karasal iklime sahiptir. Kış aylarında soğukluk -30 ya da 35 dereceye kadar düşer. Çok sert geçen kış aylarında yağan karın kalınlığı en az bir metreye ulaşır. Göle ovası, çukurluğu nedeniyle kış boyunca kimi zaman sisli günler geçirir. Yaz aylarında ise sıcaklık 25-30 dereceye kadar yükselir."

I don't know about you but 25-30C (77-86F) seems pretty warm to me. Winters, yes are very cold, but summers are still pretty warm, which this thread is about.

During days, Göle has warm temps in summer but diurnal temperature range is so high.

30°C is well above average day in Göle and on such days, diurnal temperature range can be very extreme.

On 14th August, when the low was 3.2°C, the high was 30.6°C. Diurnal temperature range was 27.4°C that day, which was when Göle's official weather station recorded its highest diurnal temperature range in the year of 2019.



However, this conversation was brought up here by members to make fun of me.

This seems to be the key word why it is so ****ing cold in winter.

I've been there 2 times in winter. The cold is like hell burning. There is so absurd cold in Göle. You actually feel burning because of too much cold. Too much cold burns you.

Surronding places have milder weathers in winter including the provincial capital of Ardahan.

Yes, I can confirm these statements are true.

Gœl has also lots of metal cans which makes it even cooler in the city centre (well, if we can call that a centre, or if we can call that place a city itself) but yes Gøle is colder than Ardahan, provincial capital Ardahan is not colder than Gõle is.
