Climate :

Like the rest of the Deep South, Mississippi has hot, humid summers and relatively mild winters. Winter temperatures run 31 to 60 F/-1 to 15 C, though they can drop to 32 F/0 C or lower on occasion, even as far south as the Gulf. Though mild, winter has the most rainfall. High humidity and temperatures of 90 F/32 C and higher are common in summer. Biloxi, though farthest south, is cooled by breezes from the Mississippi Sound and has fewer days of high heat. Spring and fall are the best times to visit the state -- the temperatures and humidities are most comfortable then. Expect March-May to provide temperatures from 43 to 85 F/6 to 29 C, with humidity running in the 54% to 85% range (humidity levels tend to decrease in the midday and afternoon hours in the South). Fall is the most agreeable time -- it's drier, with clear, sunny days and temperatures similar to those in spring. Lows may be a bit lower, but not substantially so. The weather is normally more stable in the fall; spring can have some severe thunderstorms and occasional tornadoes.
