February is chilly in the winter season in Nevada with a moderate amount of snowfall. Great Basin National Park in central Nevada receives substantial snowfall over 23" (584mm). Day temperatures are between 41°F (5°C) to 69°F (20.6°C), but nights are bitterly cold in the 12°F (-11.1°C) to 46°F (7.8°C) zone. The mountains of Sierra Nevada gather loads of snow and are a sight to watch in the winter. Sunny days occasionally occur, but the temperatures rescind quickly after sunset. Wind speeds are high in the plains due to a lack of natural barriers. Winter nights have clear skies that are ideal for stargazing. Snowshoeing, tubing, and ice-skating are popular besides skiing in cold conditions. Daylight hours are sufficient to enjoy the adventures on the white landscape, although the Sierra Nevada has a vibrant nightlife. Pack warm coats even though the days seem to be mild to warm. February is a month for budget travelers to take advantage of discounted rates in Nevada.
