First of all Precipitation data and Sunshine hours are not correct. they were uptdated a few months ago by Turkish Sate Meteorological Service.This table shows one of istanbul's city center which is probably Kartal(Anatolian side) but Istanbul has its own microclimates.For example where I live is warmer than this table
So B for me for its cool winter and occasional cold snaps

Actually it is right. Winters are mostly cloudy and wet in Istanbul while summers are very sunny and little rain.
I looked on various sites, than data is correct.

Sunshine hours are not correct. Google it u can find various sites which give different numbers.That means no proper information about sunshine hours in English.What I meant about precipitation is that Precipitation inches are not correct.
Go http://www.mgm.gov.tr/veridegerlendi...spx?m=ISTANBUL and look sixth column.By the way
You are right wet and cloudy in winter, sunny and little rain in summer.(I live in Istanbul)

I didn't realise winters were so cloudy. They are very similar to here, just slightly warmer. Summers are nice though, but it's certainly not a good climate by Turkish standards.

What are the record lows and highs? Are the summers quite humid?
