Misssissippi's weather sounds better than Nebraska's weather. I would choose the hurricanes and humidity over Nebraska's weather anyday. In Nebraska, the winters are extremely cold with snow that sticks around forever. Spring is great if you don't have allergies. June isn't bad, but it can still be very hot and humid on some days. July and August are the bad months for extreme temperatures and humidity. It starts to get cold fast once fall is here. Did I mention the tornadoes? There is a city in Nebraska that was pretty much gone after a tornado. Hallam, if you know the cities in Nebraska very well.

Mississippi had over 40,000 homes destroyed by Katrina.

Understand that we do have 4 seasons:

Almost Summer
Summer
Still Summer
Christmas

If you can accept that this is the Mississippi way and you like Sweet Tea, you will be fine.
Delta Girl, That is a wonderful description of Mississippi weather! I lived there for years before moving to SC. I'm going to share that with my family who still live in Clinton, MS. Thanks for the smile that generated!!!

So when you say "Christmas", I assuming you mean that your winter is very short, and the rest of the year is like summer or almost like summer.

Default 4 seasons

Yes, that's what my husband said when I told him the quote. He works outside too. But...there is a slight difference in N. Ms from Central, where we were from. You get snow a bit more! Woo Hoo!

It just seems like the summer heat lasts forever! Humidity too. But it's still not like the jungle thank goodness.

Speaking as a native of a town an hour from Vicksburg...

Summer (muggy and humid): April to October

Sort of Autumn (warm, but dry):October especially - but can extend into November and even December in some years. Fall colors DO happen in most if not all Mississippi!

Autumn / Sort of Winter: Winter can't make up it's mind. So yes, it does get chilly there in the winter, with snow fairly common in the northern part of the state. Cloudy, windy, rainy and cold. Weather yo-yos all over the place this time of year. Be prepared for rapidly changing temperatures (this is especially true for South Miss, and even Central Miss). It can be in the 60s or even 70s one day, sunny..then rainy and cold the next few days, then clear and cold, and every other combination you can think of. That's what it's like to live in the subtropics (and Mississippi, plus the rest of the Deep South, is considered subtropical). It's the winter battle zone between tropical and polar air masses.
