What’s the weather like in Barcelona the rest of the year

We’ve collected the weather data for Barcelona during all other months of the year too:

  • Weather in Barcelona in January
  • Weather in Barcelona in March
  • Weather in Barcelona in April

  • Weather in Barcelona in June
  • Weather in Barcelona in July
  • Weather in Barcelona in August
  • Weather in Barcelona in September
  • Weather in Barcelona in October
  • Weather in Barcelona in November
  • Weather in Barcelona in December

Where does this data come from

Weather data for Barcelona was collected from the MERRA-2 project from NASA, which used a climate model combined with historical data from weather stations around the world to estimate what the conditions were like for every point on the Earth.

For all data based on historical data, we’ve averaged the data from the past 11 years (2010-2020). For example, for the hourly temperature at 10am, we’ve looked at the temperature at 10am on every day in February (e.g., February 1, February 2, etc. in 2010, 2011, etc.) and took the arithmetic mean. We did not smooth the data, so for example, our daily temperature line will have some randomness due to the fact that weather is random in the first place.

How is the 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.

  • Things to Do in February


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

Since there will likely be quite a few sunny days in Barcelona this month, it’s a good time to take a pay-what-you-wish walking tour and learn more about the city.

You might also want to consider taking a cable car ride up Montjuic to get an incredible view of the city from above.

Barcelona celebrates Carnaval in late February, so you can expect a lot of fun activities and parades at this time of year, especially in the Gothic Quarter.

Barcelona in February 2024 – holidays and weather in Barcelona, ​​Spain

In February, there are not many places in Europe where you can have a good rest and at the same time not freeze. One of them is the pearl of the Mediterranean coast of Spain – Barcelona. In this article on the Tour-Calendar, we talk about what to prepare for and what to hope for those who decide to visit this city at the end of winter.


February in Barcelona is characterized by rather unstable weather, bright sunshine today, heavy rain tomorrow

Weather in Barcelona in February

Before proceeding to the description of the weather conditions of this month, we want to draw your attention to the fact that the attitude of different people towards them can also be different. It all depends on the starting point of the journey. As a rule, for residents of northern countries and middle latitudes, the local February resembles the end of springtime. For people from southern European regions and local residents, on the contrary, this is the coldest time of the year. In their wardrobe there are down jackets and boots with a warm lining. The Russians, on the other hand, “escaped” from 20-degree frosts and plunged into temperatures much above zero, as a rule, are limited to thick sweaters, and at the slightest hint of a hot sun, they strive to change into shirts or even T-shirts. Still, the chance to throw off heavy outerwear in winter, which you have not parted with since mid-autumn, and get rid of scarves / hats is a real blessing. It should be noted that the climate of Barcelona is characterized by inconstancy. The weather forecast differs from year to year. But in general, the weather picture is such that it is somewhat cooler here than in Andalusia, and much warmer than in Madrid. The main amount of precipitation falls mainly in summer and autumn. And in winter, cyclonic “raids” become less and less frequent, as a result of which the number of “wet” days is sharply reduced – to approximately 6-7. For most of the month, the sky pleases with its piercing blue, but is occasionally covered with nimbostratus clouds.

Moreover, such changes in the mood of nature can occur not only within a week, but within one day. The usual situation for February: it is sunny in the morning, and by the afternoon the wind rises, clouds roll in, and the air cools down by 3-5 degrees. In general, in terms of surprises, this month is undoubtedly a master. The average air temperature is around +14°C. Closer to the third decade, it grows a little after the level of the celestial body above the horizon, reaching +15. .+16°C. On some days, weather forecasters register everything +19..+20°C, heralding the imminent onset of spring. However, deviations in thermometer readings also occur in the opposite direction. Tourists also need to be prepared for sudden cold snaps. On the coldest days, temperatures range from +9°C to +13°C. At the same time, though rare, it is still possible for snow to fall. Of course, it melts almost immediately, without lingering on the sidewalks for a long time, but for many this comes as a big surprise. Be that as it may, in Barcelona in February, you still have to wear coats or jackets. After sunset, there is increased humidity (in other words, dampness), increased winds, and the feeling of cold intensifies. In the evenings – about +5..+6°C. Over time, nighttime temperatures also increase, but much more slowly. Moreover, sometimes they take a “course” for a fall. So we advise you to approach the choice of wardrobe with great care, so as not to freeze if something happens. In addition to its unpredictability, February strikes with the liveliness of nature. If Russia in the last third of winter is associated with snowdrifts and bare trees, then Barcelona is associated with green fluffy lawns, emerald mountain slopes, cherry blossoms and ripe oranges hanging in heavy clusters on branches. The eye never ceases to rejoice, looking at such beauty.

What’s on in Barcelona in February?

February weather will not allow you to frolic on the beach. But this is perhaps the most suitable period for enjoying the delightful architecture of the city. Comfortable temperatures and streets free from crowds of sightseers contribute to a thorough study of outstanding sights and the penetration of the true Catalan spirit. For some, the purpose of coming to Barcelona is effective shopping, because this is the height of the sales season. And someone coordinates the dates of their trip with the dates of the grand Barranquia carnival. In a word, winter Barcelona satisfies the needs of tourists of various preferences.

Beach holiday

Swimwear is only required for those staying at a hotel with an indoor pool. At this time, you can only admire the sea, because the water washing the Barcelona coast is icy – almost + 14 ° C. Western transfers of air masses, reaching the city, lose their former strength, but still raise small waves.

In this regard, cruises are not as common as in summer. And the panoramas are not so breathtaking due to the faded color of the water. The favor of heaven, trying to overshadow precipitation as little as possible, is not enough to get a tan. The most you can count on is leisurely walks along the coast. Fresh salty air, mixed with the aromas of flowering trees, calms the nerves well and helps to find inner harmony. On quiet windless days, picnics are often arranged on the beaches.

Try and you organize something similar. We are sure that in comparison with a meal on the shore, dinner in an expensive restaurant will not seem so attractive to you. On weekends, families with children go to the sea. Many beaches are superbly equipped for games. For example, Nova Ikaria has a fun rope swing.

Entertainment and excursions

In February, you will not be embarrassed by the crowd, which will make the rest relatively measured and peaceful. Barcelona is one of those unique cities that you can’t see, you can feel it. Here everything is integral and exists only in unity with something. Mountain landscapes resonate with sea views, masterpieces of architecture are certainly complemented by luxurious park complexes, lively streets are hard to imagine without young energetic people, and the famous La Rambla boulevard would lose its flavor without amusing mimes and clever pickpockets.

After admiring the ingenious creations of Gaudi, in which he showed all the richness of his imagination (Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Casa Batlló, House Mila, etc. ), take a walk around the Old Port area, climb to the observation deck to the foot of the statue of the discoverer of America, Christopher Columbus, and you will be rewarded with a superb view from a height of 60 meters on the embankment, the Rambla and Montjuic. Nearby is one of the largest aquariums in Europe, made in the form of an 80-meter tunnel for 5 million liters of water. Slushy chilly weather is an excellent reason to look into the numerous museums of the Catalan capital, which are a storehouse of everything unusual. The subjects of the expositions are very different – art, military affairs, sports, football, fashion, sweets, etc. A wonderful respite from cultural and educational recreation is, no doubt, shopping. Shopping this month is not only pleasant, but also profitable, since discounts in stores and shopping centers are maximum – 70%.

Holidays and festivals

In the early days, the organizers of the spectacular LlumBCN light show come to Barcelona to decorate the streets, buildings and city parks with colorful lights and installations. In mid-February, Barcelona hosts the traditional Mitja Marató de Barcelona half marathon. Among its participants there are also athletes running in wheelchairs. In February, several music festivals take place at once. These are the one-day music festival “Emergencia”, the guitar music festival “Giutar Festival BCN” and the three-day festival “In-Somni Fest”, introducing various musical styles and trends. At the end of the month, the rhythm of the relaxed city quickens. In the last week before Lent, he is seized by carnival fever.

The brightly colored streets hum with musical concerts and shudder with colorful costume processions. All of Barcelona these days pours into the streets and indulges in unbridled fun.

What are the prices for holidays in Barcelona in February?

Barcelona in February is a safe haven for budget travelers. Of course, there is no talk of a cheap vacation, but compared to the rates in the summer season, the rates for hotel accommodation are very moderate. The exception is carnival days, when the city experiences an impressive influx of foreign visitors.
