Weather in February

February is cold in New Mexico with freezing nights in the north and cold but above freezing temperatures in the south. Temperatures vary widely from a warm 63°F (17.2°C) in the day in the plains to a freezing 6°F (-14.4°C) during the night at high altitudes. Santa Fe, the capital of New Mexico, records average temperatures in the 22°F (-5.6°C) to 48°F (8.9°C), while Taos lies between 17°F (-8.3°C) and 46°F (7.8°C).
Precipitation is negligible in February, but snow averages a healthy 5" (127mm) to 7" (178mm) in the north, with places like Sugarite Canyon Park recording above 16" (406mm).
Skiing, tubing, and sleigh rides are delightful winter activities in the warm sunlight. A horseback ride through the magical forests of New Mexico is straight out of the magical realm. Winter coats provide much-needed warmth as the sunshine wanes rapidly during the short days. Strong winds can increase the chill factor in the evenings, which is the time to warm the cold feet in the comfort of a mountain lodge.
