Moderate rain occurs on 37% of all rainy days; light rain is observed on 16% of the days with rainfall; and it drizzles on 28% of all days with precipitation.
Cloud cover is essentially constant throughout the month, which is the main reason for the little variety in rainfall. Cloud cover ranges around 39% on every day in February, which is only a slight increase compared with January's cloud cover.
Even though cloud cover is pretty much the same in January and February, the total number of sunshine hours is 8 in February, which is one hour more than the previous month. The same number of sunshine hours is observed in October and November as well. The only explanation for the increase in sunshine in February, despite having the same amount of cloud cover as January, is that the days are getting longer.

Things to do in Lloret de Mar in February
Take advantage of the cool weather and take a trip to explore the magnificent city of Barcelona. Barcelona is located only about 70 kilometres from the resort and is easily reached by car or bus. With incredible architecture and a thriving cultural scene, a visit to the city is a must. Visit the many fascinating museums, shop 'till you drop in the city's top-brand stores or simply take it easy and sip a café con leche in a small café. Barcelonese highlights include Les Rambles, the magnificent Sagrada Familia, all of Gaudi's buildings, Parc Guëll and Port Olimpic.
In the resort itself, you have to check out the Parish Church of Sant Roma. This is one of the city's greatest buildings and a major landmark. The church is located smack-bang in the middle of the city centre, so it is impossible to miss it. It dates back to the early 16th century and is striking because of its distinct architectural style and colored tiled roofs. The church is open daily between 9.30am and 1pm, and again between 4pm and 7.30pm. Mass takes place every weekday at 7pm in Catalan; on Saturday at 6pm in Spanish and 8pm in Catalan; and on Sunday at 10.30am in multiple languages, at 12pm in Catalan and at 8pm in Spanish and Catalan.
