Biloxi, Mississippi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For a climate with warm/hot summers, I think I would be fine here except those 100F+ days aren't that uncommon. Heat indexes of 110F+ aren't unheard of either. And then of course there are the occasional hurricanes to deal with...(Katrina, Camille, etc.)


Precipitation is generous all year although the averages are somewhat misleading, especially in summer when hurricanes are a possibility...so, there is some variability there.

27" of rain in August 1996:

And I'm not sure if this is correct but...51" in June!

I'll give it a D+ since the winters look pleasant, although the temperatures are variable in winter.

C-, only because of the chance of snow that Sydney doesn't have (it would be a D+ otherwise). Basically Biloxi is Sydney with a bit more rain and a hotter, longer summer.

F. Summers are way too hot and humid, and would be sheer horror for me. In addition the complete lack of a winter renders it devoid of any redeeming characteristics.

Maybe B-

Oppressive summers are the main concern. Not liking that record low either.

Although a subtropical steam-bath in the hot season (as a warm weather fan I would not mind at all), much of the rest of the year is quite nice in Gulfport-Biloxi. 60 - 62 F/15/16 C average highs for the three winter months offers a nice seasonal change, but real winter and the cold, stormy, cloudy regime of higher latitudes locations like the PNW, Great Lakes, New England...etc is avoided. Gulfport -Biloxi averages zero snowfall annually. Most of the year sunny high pressure dominates, and the Gulf of Mexico has some amazing beaches and 85 F SST in summer.

B+
