Average temperature lanzarote february: Average weather February in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
weather and climate – How warm is the sea in Lanzarote in the Canaries in February?
10 years, 3 months ago
I’ll be in Lanzarote in February. I’ve been there in high summer when of course it was very hot but what’s the sea temperature like in February?
About 18 degrees Celsius, give or take:
And that website seriously hurts my eyes.
Somewhat more readable, but not giving historical details:
Most of the islands are pretty similar in climate, but Wikipedia has a great chart for temperatures of Gran Canaria and Tenerife, indicating that the average high in February is around 21 degrees Celsius, the mean temperature for the day is 18 deg, and the average low is 15 deg. You can also expect 1 in 8-10 days to have rain, on average.
For more specifically Lanzarote details, we had to hunt through the Agencia Estatal de Meteorología – the metereological agency used as a source for the above Wikipedia data. And yes, they have a climate page on Lanzarote.
This indicates that 17.5 is the daily average, the average high is 21.2, the average low is 13.9 and in terms of rainfall, you can expect 14mm over 3 days of the month, on average.
For the ocean, we have to go to different websites. I’ll provide three:
- Holiday Weather – indicating that in February the average sea temperature is 18 degrees.
- IberVillas agrees with this – indicating 18 degrees as well.
- Big Blue Planet – scroll down to the list of places, or search for Lanzarote on the page, and it also says 18, so we’re looking pretty confident in this regard.

2. Cyprus temperature in February
In February the weather in Cyprus is mild winter with many sunny days and average daytime temperature or 17 °C.
Figure: Average temperature during daytime. February: 17 °C.
In February is great for exploring the countryside, the traditional villages of Cyprus and Cypriot cousin.
At the coasts of Cyprus the temperature is 15-20 C during day time while at the mountains it droops to 0-10 with some snow.During the day the temperature is 25-35 °C and it drops to 15-25 at night. The chance of rain is less that 5%. The sun sets at 18:30. The weather at Troodos mountains is a bit colder with temperatures of 15-25 °C and 5-6 rainy days in February.
3. What clothes to wear in February
You will mostly use your summer clothes. At day time you will probably wear shorts, t-shirt, swimming suit etc. You should also have a sweater and a pair of pants for the night or in case the weather turns a bit cooler than normal. Below are a few photos I have taken during January so that you can get a better idea of the weather and what most people wear.

4. Going to the beach in February
The sea water temperature depends on your destination. In the south coasts of Limassol, Larnaca and Ayia Napa the waters are shallower and warmer with temperatures of 24-26 °C in February. The west cost of Paphos and northern coasts of Latchi have colder waters with temperatures of 22-24 °C in February.

5. Things to do in February
Summer activities on the beach are also good in February. Sun is still hot and water is warm so you can keep sunbathing and swimming. Water parks will not close till February. It is better to plan your excursions around the island for early morning or late afternoon to avoid the sun at its peak. Wine Festival that has started in the end of August continues in September so do not miss the chance to spend great time outdoor trying different local wines and traditional Cypriot food and watching dance and theater performances.

The temperate drops at Night to about 7°C 45°F and has a high daytime reading of about 17°C 63°F (All are averages as the temperature varies between Nicosia and Limassol for example at about 2°C-3°C – Nicosia having the lowest reading being in the center of Cyprus, whereas the coastal towns enjoy a rather mildest climate). On the mountains temperatures often drops to as low as 0°C or even lower. Hail and snow in the plains are very rare but in the unlikely event of snow, it melts quickly before it even touching the earth. Frosts during the winter are frequent in the inland and coastal areas.

We base comfort level on dew point, as it determines whether sweat will evaporate from the skin, cooling the body. A lower dew point makes you feel more dry, while a higher dew point makes you feel more humid. Unlike temperature, which typically varies significantly between day and night, dew point tends to change more slowly, so while temperatures may drop at night, a wet day usually gives way to a wet night.
The probability that a given day will be raw in Lanzarote basically does not change throughout February, remaining all the time at about 1% .
The lowest probability of a wet day in February is 0% February 1, .
For reference: on August 31, , on the wettest day of , dampness is felt 58% of of the time, and on February 1, , on the least wet day of , damp on 0% of time.

This section describes the average hourly wind vector (speed and direction) over a large area at 10 meters above the ground. The wind experienced at any given location is highly dependent on local topography and other factors, and instantaneous wind speed and direction vary more widely than hourly averages.
The average hourly wind speed in Lanzarote basically does not change throughout February, all the time remaining approximately within plus or minus 0.3 kilometers per hour from 23.0 kilometers per hour .
For reference: on July 17, , in the windiest day of , the average daily wind speed is0010 east south west
Percentage of hours during which the average wind direction corresponds to each of the four main wind directions, excluding hours in which the average wind speed is less than 1.6 km/h . The slightly shaded areas on the borders are the percentage of hours in the implied intermediate directions (northeast, southeast, southwest, and northwest).
Lanzarote is located near a large body of water (eg ocean, sea or large lake). This section describes the average daily surface temperature of this large area of water.

Definitions of growing season vary around the world, but in the context of this description, we define it as the longest continuous period of temperatures above freezing (≥ 0°C) in a year (the Northern Hemisphere calendar year, or July 1 to 30 June in the Southern Hemisphere).
Temperatures in Lanzarote are quite warm all year round, so there is no point in discussing the growing season on these terms. However, we include the graph below as an illustration of the distribution of temperatures throughout the year.
Percentage of time spent in different temperature ranges. The black line is the percentage chance that a given day is within the growing season.
Growth degree days is a measure of annual heat accumulation used to predict the development of plants and animals and is defined as all threshold exceedances of a given temperature minimum, excluding maximum temperature exceedances. In this description, the temperature minimum is 10 °C and the maximum is 30 °C .
The average number of accumulated growth degree days in Lanzarote increases by during February, increasing by by 90th percentile.
This section describes the total daily incident shortwave solar energy reaching the earth’s surface over a large area, fully accounting for seasonal variations in day length, the height of the Sun above the horizon, and absorption by clouds and other atmospheric constituents. Shortwave radiation includes visible light and ultraviolet radiation.

The information on this site is provided as is, without any guarantee of its accuracy or suitability for any purpose. The weather data may contain errors, glitches and other defects. We are not responsible for any decisions made on the basis of the information provided on this website.
We pay special attention to the fact that for a number of important data types we rely on reconstructions based on the MERRA-2 model. With huge advantages in temporal and spatial completeness, these reconstructions: (1) are based on computer models that may have typical model errors, (2) use coarse sampling on a 50 km grid and therefore cannot reconstruct local variations in many microclimates, and (3) experiencing particular weather difficulties in some coastal areas, especially on smaller islands.
We also caution that our travel points are only as accurate as the data on which they are based, that the weather conditions in any particular place and at any time are unpredictable and changeable, and that points calculation reflects a certain set of preferences that may not coincide with preferences of the individual reader.

Where to go on holiday in February?
Who among us does not dream of escaping, at least for a while, from the prevailing winter cold in the country and, at least for a short time, resting from everyday life in a beautiful and warm place? Service veselyiturist. ru has prepared for you a rating of the best offers of tourist destinations.
The second largest island in the Caribbean. It is divided into two parts: Haiti and the Dominican Republic. White beaches, coconut trees, a high standard in hotels and above all great weather is what we can expect in the Dominican Republic, no matter when we plan our trip. In February, the average temperature is 29°C during the day and 19°C at night, while the water is around 26°C! We have a long flight ahead of us, but this is the perfect place to stay in February.
Perfect blend of modernity with oriental culture, many unique monuments, tropical monsoon and equatorial monsoon climate in the south, sandy beaches and numerous coral reefs are some of the many attractions that Sri Lanka has to offer. Add to that 31°C during the day, 23°C at night and 28°C of water – this is the perfect place. This destination is very popular among travel agents, so if you are planning a holiday in February, you should constantly check last minute deals.
True, February is the coldest month in the Canary Islands, but for us leaving the February winter behind us, it will still be a wonderful choice.
- The average temperature in January and February in the Canaries ranges from 15°C to 21°C. It also, of course, depends on which of the 7 islands of the archipelago we will be on – the farther to the west, the cooler.
- In the morning in the western islands, in La Palma, El Hierro, La Gomera or Tenerife, moderate average temperatures are around 17 °C.
- On the other hand, the eastern islands, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, due to their proximity to the African coast and the Sahara, are wetter and warmer. Here in February, thermometers can reach up to 25 °C.
- Gran Canaria, located between them, will combine the climate of all the Canary Islands.
There are also differences between the north and south of the islands: it is warmer in the south. This is most evident in the example of Tenerife, in the center of which is the highest peak in Spain – Teide.
