Have read before that Kandy and around is a lot cooler than the coast,is it by much or do i need something a bit warmer to wear at night?
Night temperatures in Kandy will be around 20C in February. Day temperatures around 26-28C. So really no need to bring warmer clothes for Kandy.
N'Eliya is a total different story. There you will need warmer clothes as it can drop to close to 0C in the night.
Hmmm... tend to disagree about Kandy, and we've stayed there in all seasons. In summer indeed night temps not below 20'. In November through March it can get to 15'and the pools feel even cooler in early morning then! Still at the edge of whether one needs warmer clothes or not, but would bring them anyway for Eliya...

I can't remember how many times I've been to Kandy, probably about 25 times, probably averaging about 3 or 4 days per visit and I've never felt the need for warmer clothes in the evenings.
However, I do know the temperature can do funny things. Last year, in Sigirya, the evening suddenly went very cold about 8 pm.It should have been about 25 degrees but all night stayed really cold and at breakfast we were all shivering.It felt almost frosty.
The locals all said they'd never experienced it before.
So, although I havn't experienced any cold nights in Kandy, I don't doubt it could happen.
I do know that the outdoor pool at the Thi Lanka Hotel can be very cold in mid afternoon after being in the hot sun all day.
