Somewhat better than where I live, but still way too hot and humid. D.

Exactly! I just looked up the temp data for Tupelo(same climate), and the std deviation in Jan is around 12 degrees on the high, and 11 degrees on the low. In Jan 2009 (Jan 2010 and 2011 were below normal) the avg monthly temp was 1F above normal, yet the month fluctuated between a max daily high of 72F, and then 11 days later the high temp was 25F. The min montly low was 12F, and the temps for the month are all over the map. To me, a terrible climate if you don't like your Jan going between the 20's and the 70's. D for me.

OMG, July/August highs are in the mid 90s in that part of Mississippi? They're only in the low 90s in the Jackson area. Summers are apparently sunnier in Memphis than in Jackson, so that might be the reason...

That was fairly common in Nashville as well, though maybe not as drastic on the warm end. You'd have a couple of days in the 60s, then less than a week later it might be 25 and snowing. I don't know with certainty that this was the cause, but it seemed a lot of my coworkers would get sick when the weather would fluctuate like that. Some winters it didn't seem to happen as much, and others it seemed practically common. I definitely didn't care for it, because the warm days reminded me that summer was right around the corner.
