It was the gentle subtropical climate — mild temperatures, moderate rainfall and plenty of sunshine — that made Natchez the heart of the cotton belt, and that perfect crop weather drew planters whose beautiful antebellum mansions still stand today.

If you love the outdoors, Spring is a great time to visit, with Natchez weather featuring highs in the 70s and 80s and lows in the 50s and 60s at night. The lazy days of summer hover in the high 90s, while summer evenings in the mid 70s invite you to stay up, stay out and enjoy the nightlife.
