I have some friends who relocated there in 2005 from Southern California. As far as I can tell, they like it, but it took them a while to adapt to the humidity and the very real threat of hurricanes.

I've actually spent a couple weeks there! ( A boring couple weeks, aside from New Orleans excursions, but still... )

It's alright, climatically. I give it a B for the regular cold spells in winter.

C. Too hot during summer, too cool and wet during winter.

Really enjoyable from May to mid-Oct. A little cool otherwise, and the records low are scary

Hmm. Maybe I should have rated it lower. Those winter months look pleasant but if they get that cold regularly, the vegetation might look rather frozen and winter-like.

I gave it a B because outside the summer months, the rest of the year looks very nice.

Very good for me.

It'd go into the B range for me if temperatures going into those record lows happen often or if there is too much variability in the warmer months going into the shoulder seasons (For example a high of near 90F followed by a high of under 50F in say April, one day after another, very often).

Standard deviation in Southern Mississippi in April is 4-5 F for the highs and about 8 F for the lows. The data I looked at was for Gulfport, but I assume it wouldn't be drastically different in Diamondhead. Looking at wunderground, April seems like a relatively stable month in the region, though highs can bounce around from time to time.
