Hot. Hot, humid, muggy. It's typical southern rain - pop up thunderstorms in the summertime. In the late summer and fall, when the hurricanes hit the coast, the rain will head north and sometimes soak the area.

I think it "snowed" a time or two this year. Snow usually means a dusting up to 2". The whole town will shut down. It rarely snows more than 2". Very, very rare.

Tornadoes and strong straight line winds are the biggest threat.

It can get super hot but it also cools off at night. We're in the foothills of the Appalachias here, it's not like further south on the coast or even 100 miles south around Jackson.

Besides, "super hot" is relative. I lived in Tucson AZ for a while and THAT place can get super hot! We're talking 110-115 degrees here and there's very little shade. Humiditiy or no, that is HOT. It's so hot driving with your window down can burn your arm from the blast of hot WIND. Mississippi can be hot, but not hot like that.
