June is the beginning of the hot and humid summer in Mississippi with long and sunny days. Day temperatures soar between the hot zone of 87°F (30.6°C) and 90°F (32.2°C), while nights are warm between 63°F (17.2°C) to 72°F (22.2°C). The precipitation is on the rise, and the Gulf coast receives the highest rainfall of 7" (178mm) compared to 4" (102mm) in the north. Early June is a continuation of spring weather, but the humidity rises sharply by the second half of the month. The waters of Mississippi Sound moderate the temperatures in the surrounding areas, which have significantly less number of days above 90°F (32.2°C). Mornings and evenings are ideal beach timings as afternoons are hot and prone to thunderstorms. Do not forget to wear sunglasses and sunscreen while on the beaches. The northern hills offer cooler temperatures than the rest of the state and see many visitors. Thankfully, air-conditioners are a rule everywhere than an exception. Be alert for tropical storms and tornadoes in June in Mississippi.
