What’s the weather like in Crete in February?
Located in the Aegean Sea, the Greek island of Crete has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild, often wet winters. Although February is one of the cooler months in Crete, temperatures are steadily rising as springtime comes within sight. With extended spells of golden sunshine and just a light amount of cloud cover, February’s a great time of the year to explore the island’s many historic sights away from the summer heat. With the odd rain shower and some strong winds, it’s worth packing a rain jacket to protect you from the elements.
On the island of Crete, average daytime temperatures in February are 120C, with highs of 160C at the peak of the day and lows of 80C. With a sea temperature of 160C, the water feels relatively mild if you decide to take a dip. There are around three hours of sunshine each day, although with 64mm of rain during the month, some showers are expected too. Occasionally there are thunderstorms, so prepare yourself for changeable weather.
