May is sunny in the spring season in Mississippi, with at least 8 hours of sunshine every day. However, the highest frequency of afternoon storms occurs during the peak of spring that also brings heavy showers. The average daily highs are in the warm 80°F (26.7°C) to 85°F (29.4°C) range, while the nights are comfortable in the 59°F (15°C) to 68°F (20°C) zone. Many wildlife management areas open for hunting turkeys and other permitted birds and animals. Spring break sees a beeline of visitors in the state and national parks. Freshly produced farm goods are up for grabs at farmers' markets. The latter half of the spring tends to be wet, with an increase in the frequency of storms on the Gulf Coast. Fishing and boating is a wonderful relaxation in the refreshing waters of the mild season. Light summer clothing is suitable during the day. The heat and humidity rise to bothersome levels by the end of May in Mississippi.
