February is a cold winter month in Pennsylvania as the days rarely go above 45°F (7.2°C), and the nights are well below freezing. Jamestown, New Castle, and Warren, all in the west, register night temperatures below 20°F (-6.7°C). Snowstorms and blizzards frequently occur during the winter as the plows continuously strive to keep the roads and highways free of snow. Snowfall is in the average 10" (254mm) to 12" (305mm) range in the lowlands, while the highlands receive at least twice that. The February sun is just 35% to 40% of the peak in the majority of the state, while the southeast corner averages 50%. Cloudy skies are typical, while rain is mostly in the form of ice and snow. As winter knocks in the state, the picturesquely white landscape in the cloak of snow appears to be the setting of storybook scenery, particularly in the state parks in the backdrop of mountains! Overall, February is not a good time to visit Pennsylvania due to the intense cold weather.
