Severe weather caused by the Lodos wind from the southwest has resulted in the cancelation of several ferry services on the Bosphorus and the Marmara Sea.

At the same time, heavy rain in the northwestern province of Balıkesir resulted in the death of one person.

Meteorologists have issued advisories about thunderstorms in western Turkey, while eastern provinces may witness the first snowfall of the year.

Thunderstorms could affect the western coast of the Marmara region, the Aegean coast and the western Black sea region. A thunderstorm also postponed regular ferry service for three hours between Eskihisar and Topçular in the northwestern provinces of Kocaeli and Yalova, respectively.

Meteorologists also said snow could fall for the first time on Kartepe, a ski resort in Kocaeli.
