What's the weather like in Hawaii in February

In January only 78mm of rain are expected to fall over an average of 18 days. However, in February the level of precipitation is likely to increase to 90mm throughout the month, spread over just 16 days.

Temperatures are still very welcoming in February. Average temperatures are usually a very beautiful 23°C throughout the month. And though this is equal to the coldest month of the year in Hawaii, it is still a far cry from the winter climate back in the UK.
On average, temperatures will reach highs of 26°C during the second month of the year. And even at night, the average lows are unlikely to fall below 20°C. This ensures the consistently warm climate of the Hawaiian region remains uninterrupted.
In recorded history, the temperature has never fallen below 13°C in Hawaii in February. Although temperatures did hit a high of 32°C in February 1991.
Sea temperatures will usually take a little dip in February and fall to their coolest level throughout the year. However at 24°C, no one is going to want to resist. This slight cooling of the sea also comes with bigger waves and more challenging surf, ensuring no one can stay out of the water.
An average of eight hours of daily sunshine complete a very pretty picture for anyone visiting Hawaii in February. Though there can be some rain, the warmth and beauty of the island will more than make up for a few wet patches.
