February is the snowiest month of the year in Delaware and also the period of snowstorms. Icy winds from the north blow towards the state and keep the region cold. The average temperatures are in the cold 26°F (-3.3°C) to 47°F (8.3°C) range. The skies are partly cloudy, but the rainfall rarely crosses 3" (76mm) in the state. Beaches have fewer crowds in the winter, and the conditions are perfect for a brisk walk in the morning. The humidity is low in the cold season, with maximum levels in the mornings. Snowfall is to the tune of 4" (102mm) to 8" (203mm), with the coastal regions receiving light amounts. Snowstorms routinely occur in February to build up large deposits of snow. Layered clothing is helpful to bear the chilly winter weather. It is a prudent idea to avoid Delaware during February when the chances of snowstorms are the highest.
