Average high/low temps for February are 45/21.

Be prepared for winter weather and snow.Take traction devices like Yak Trax for your shoes as ice can be present on the trails.

The GCNPsite will answer many questions that you have.

COLD!

Seriously... average daytime highs in February are in the 40's (Fahrenheit) and overnight low's in the 20's (F). Snow is a very real possibility too, but I wouldn't let any of that discourage you from visiting. The Grand Canyon looks really amazing in the snow, plus it's not crazy-busy like summertime. Sometimes you can even score a good deal on a hotel room (though not on holidays such as President's Day, Valentine's Day, etc.). Just be prepared to bring a coat and gloves and don't schedule your trip too tightly in case you do get stuck somewhere due to bad weather. Start monitoring the weather about 2 weeks before you get ready to visit. That will give you a better idea of what to expect.

There are better times of the year to visit which are not as cold...

Which rim are you planning on visiting and have you made reservations yet?

I hope they are planning to visit the south rim since the north rim is officially closed for the winter until May. :)
