The last month of the winter, February
, is a hot month in Hua Hin
, with an average temperature varying between 23.3°C (73.9°F) and 31.3°C (88.3°F).
The perfect water temperature of 28°C (82.4°F) with 15mm (0.59") of accumulated rainfall and only 2 rainfall days, makes February a great period for swimming and other water activities.
In Hua Hin, the average high-temperature in February is relatively the same as in January
- a hot 31.3°C (88.3°F). In February, in Hua Hin, the average low-temperature is 23.3°C (73.9°F).
The average heat index in February is computed to be a very hot 39°C (102.2°F). Take extra precautions, as heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible. Sustained activity may result in heatstroke.
Note that heat index values are valued for light wind and location in the shade. Exposure to direct sunshine can increase heat index values by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees.Note
: The heat index, also known as 'felt air temperature', 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', is calculated by taking the relative humidity value for a specific location and factoring it into the air temperature reading. Additional factors like pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, wind, and activity influence one's weather impression. Be aware that direct exposure to sunlight increases heat impact and may raise the heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Young children are generally more endangered than adults, as they usually less sweat. And also, due to larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production as a result of their activity.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration. Excessive warmth is eliminated from the body by evaporation of sweat. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. When heat gain exceeds the level the body can remove, body temperature begins to rise, and heat-related illnesses and disorders may develop.
In February, the average relative humidity is 73%.
In Hua Hin, during February, the rain falls for 2 days and regularly aggregates up to 15mm (0.59") of precipitation. Throughout the year, in Hua Hin, there are 118 rainfall days, and 955mm (37.6") of precipitation is accumulated.

, with an average sea temperature of 28°C (82.4°F).Note
: Water temperature between 25°C (77°F) and 29°C (84.2°F) is regarded as very warm and enjoyable by all. With these temperatures, water activities are pleasurable, without feeling uncomfortable for prolonged periods.

and December, with an average of 9h of sunshine, are months with the most sunshine.
February through October
, with an average maximum UV index of 12, are months with the highest UV index in Hua Hin. A UV Index value of 11, and more, symbolizes an excessive health risk from unsafe exposure to UV radiation for the average person.Note
: The daily maximum UV index of 12 in February interpret into the following advice:
Take all required precautions, as unprotected skin and eyes can burn in minutes. Seek shade and minimize exposure to direct Sun in a period between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when UV radiation is most intense; keep in mind that shade structures like parasols or canopies do not provide perfect sun protection. On bright days sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays should be worn. A hat with a wide brim is extremely helpful, as it can prevent roughly 50% of UV radiation from reaching the eyes. A broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ should be liberally applied and re-applied every two hours, and immediately after an outdoor workout or a swim. Beware! The reflection of water and sand dramatically increases exposure to the UV rays.
