Weather in February

February continues the trend of hot summer temperatures in Brazil, but it brings a slight respite from the intense heat of January. The heat lessens slightly across the country, with temperatures decreasing marginally in the northeastern regions and the Amazon Basin. Still, in these areas, temperatures often remain above 30°C (86°F), retaining their characteristic summer warmth.

The coastal cities, including the popular tourist destination of Rio de Janeiro, experience a similar temperature range as in January, between 22.8°C (73°F) to 27.2°C (81°F). This climate makes the coast an attractive destination for both domestic and international visitors seeking to enjoy the sea and the renowned Carnival Festival held every year in February.

Southern Brazil continues to exhibit more temperate conditions, with milder temperatures in comparison to the northern and central regions. However, the highlands and mountainous areas see a gradual rise in temperatures, as February is generally warmer than the forthcoming month of March.

Rainfall remains substantial during February, similar to the patterns in January. Amazonian cities like Manaus continue to see heavy showers and high humidity, while the northeastern regions maintain their arid conditions. Nonetheless, this precipitation supports the lush vegetation and vibrant ecosystems characteristic of Brazil, particularly in the Amazon Rainforest.
