Inaccurate Information

Your information for April and May of 2019 is inaccurate. We had cooler temperatures than we ever remember having and we have been in drought-like conditions for all of June and July with lower than normal temperatures even having cold fronts. All the way to the Gulf Coast, we've had mornings in the 60s and 70s and many days (most days) in the 80s. That is not hot for the deep south in July - it is extremely cool. It seems like you are pulling information from certain areas but not getting good facts about what's going on.

Response to the wedding planners comments***

The chart above the comments area shows the monthly rain/heat predictions chart,(bar -graph).Please bear in mind that this does not mean it will be perfect weather all around for planned receptions.It's what they call a weather trend forcasting,or back casting.It's based mainly on historical record trends and/or models that computers come close to predicting .It does not mean mother nature follows a set path ,as predicted.Best practices are to be prepaired in the event of, such as covered areas if the weather does change .In the southern areas consider having cooling fans or A/C.
I know ,a family member of mine planned a wedding during August,in New Orleans.It was HOT outside during the wedding ,and the buisness location didn't turn the indoor A/C on till the last minute for reception!!!
Plan ahead ,and be safe.

July 2019 weather southeat mississppi coastal valley

As july kicked off here in southern Louisiana ,we have been under extreme heat wave at 95° F averages noon , and no rain at all !!! The upper atmospheric highs from the end of June till July 7th have put us in a mild drought.If anybody knows how to do a indian rain dance we can sure use it.Last time this weather occured was over a decade ago.And that was followed by a verry active hurricane season .As a reminder stay cool hydrated and take breaks during peak temperatures hours.

Outdoor beach wedding-Okaloosa Island 9/27/19

Outdoor beach wedding on Okaloosa Island 9/27/19. Any weather information would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

wedding

So, it's always unpredictable but we've been doing pretty well. I had my wedding here weathered out but it was due to hurricane Rita down in the gulf back in 05. Smart play to have a backup plan for cover. We were fortunately able to do the ceremony in the restaurant we rented for the reception. At the end of the day, we were married, good time had by all, and it's all good.
