    February should see the weather as good as it gets in El Calafate - it's still summer. You're a long way south though, so daily average temps are in the low 60s and nights in the 40s - that means you could hit 70 but equally a chilly wind could bring daytime temps down into the 50s so don't leave all the woollies at home and bring a windproof jacket as the winds that come off the glaciers are freezing at any time of the year. It's an area of very little rainfall with quite possibly none at all in February - all in all, one of the best months of the year to visit.
