February Weather and Diving
February 2020 - 2019 - 2018 - 2017 - 2016 - 2015 - 2014 - 2013 - 2012 - 2011
February 2020 was almost the same as February 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 and 2015: sunny and warm but there was just as the two previous years a bit more wind; many days were sunny with hardly a cloud in sight, on just one day we had a tiny bit of rain in the day. It was warm though this year, much warmer than average. Sea temperature has dropped considerably, and has been down to around 24 degrees and after that to 25-26 for a considerable period, but it is back up to 28 now. So we experienced a normal month of February, just a bit warmer: nice and warm with some windy days but in general calm weather.
We experienced 18 days with a strong or moderate wind, clearly above average.
Diving at our housereef here in Kata was possible every day, as was diving at all other divesites, the same as in 2019. In 2018 on three days we could not safely reach the King Cruiser/Shark Point area.
