Weather in February

February continues the winter season in Sweden with temperatures remaining quite low, substantial snowfall, and slowly lengthening daylight hours. Just as in January, the weather conditions in February greatly depend on the geographical region within the country.

The northern regions, including cities like Kiruna and Luleå, continue to witness harsh winter conditions. Although the Polar Night phenomenon has ended by February, daylight hours are still considerably limited. Temperatures often stay below -15°C (5°F), although they are slightly milder compared to the extreme colds of January. Snowfall remains significant, often surpassing 30mm (1.18"), which contributes to the consistent snow cover in this region.

In the southern parts of the country, cities such as Malmö and Gothenburg see a slow rise in temperatures, averaging from -1°C (30.2°F) to 3°C (37.4°F). Snowfall in these regions is relatively less, with totals reaching approximately 10mm (0.39"). However, icy and snowy conditions can still prevail, especially in the event of cold snaps.

Compared to January, February witnesses a gradual increase in daylight hours and marginally milder temperatures, indicating the impending arrival of spring. Moving forward to March, there will be a notable shift in weather as temperatures begin to climb, snow starts to melt, and the daylight hours continue to increase.

Regardless of the persistent winter conditions, February is an opportune time to partake in winter sports and activities. The snow-covered landscapes are perfect for skiing, snowboarding, and ice skating. Additionally, the northern regions still provide a good chance to catch a glimpse of the mesmerizing Northern Lights.
