Weather in Barcelona in February?


February offers mostly sunny skies with limited rainy days, so it is one of the best months to explore the city as it's less crowded and more affordable.


Daytime high temperatures will generally be around 13-14 C (mid-50s F) early in the month but will warm to about 15 C (upper 50s F) near the end of the month.

A few of the warmer afternoons, especially late in the month can reach 18-19 C (mid-60s F). The record high temperature in Barcelona during February is 23 C (73 F).

Late night and early morning low temperatures will tend to be near 4-5 C (low 40s F) early in the month, warming to 6-7 C (mid-40s F) by month’s end. 

A few of the colder mornings, especially early in the month, can dip down to near 1 C (mid-30s F). The record low temperature in Barcelona during February is -2 C (28 F).

Clouds and Rain

You can expect about 16 days this month to be sunny or at least partly sunny so there will be ample time to explore the city. 

About 4-5 days will record some rainfall, although most times rainfalls are light. Snow can occur in Barcelona; however, it is rare. When snow occurs, it is usually limited to the interior hills. 

Daylight Hours

Daylight increases rapidly this month from 10.1 hours on February 1 to 11.2 hours on the 28th. 


Wind speeds during February will mostly be light at 4-12 mph/6-19 kph but occasionally can be moderate at 13-18mph/20-28kph.

Ocean Temperatures

On average, the ocean temperature during February will be a chilly 13 C (mid-50s F) so it will not be a good time to be at the beach. 

What to Wear in Barcelona during February? 

February tends to be cold so bring along clothes suitable for early Winter. We recommend long-sleeved shirts and tops, as well as a couple of sweaters plus a medium-weight coat or jacket. 

Add a scarf or two for the colder evenings and mornings and don’t forget some comfortable walking shoes 

Things to Do in Barcelona in February
