Any insights as to what to expect weatherwise in Dharamsala (McLeod Ganj) in mid-February?

Planning to fly from Delhi to Dharamsala in mid-Feb, and then after a few days continue on by car to Amritsar.

Wondering about cold, snow, flight delays, road conditions, etc.

Thanks!

February is a cold month up there. Weather conditions can change rapidly but that part of North India is currently under snow. Besides, most guest houses don't really have much in the way of heating so be prepared to pack lots of warm clothes. Thermal underwear is not something you usually associate with India but in this case, I would recommend it!
Having said that, it is a beautiful place, the mountain views are spectacular and there is no shortage of things to do.

I'm with masala dosa here. I spent a Losar (three weeks) there in Feb/March. Cold it was. I stayed in a place with no heat, and it was humid/cold with the rain. Periods of sunshine, but cold(ish) is my memory. I had a wool jacket made there, then passed it on to a Tibetan nun when I left. Rain jacket/long underwear were essential.

Talking Dharamsala in February

Nameste, Brrrrr! Nice in the day, quite chilly at night. You could stay in Dharamsala which is warmer as it's much lower in altitude with a nicer climate. I'd walk there at least once a week from McLeod Ganj and walk back. About 10 klicks each way. McLeod Ganj is more interesting, better restaurants, killer views, more tourists to hang out with, and the high point his Holiness lives there so you can hang out at his temple. Way cool!!!!!!!!!!! Happy trails
