Biloxi, officially the City of Biloxi, is a city in Harrison County, Mississippi. The city is part of the Gulfport-Biloxi metropolitan area and the Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula, Mississippi Combined Statistical Area. Pre-Katrina, Biloxi was the third largest city in Mississippi behind Jackson and Gulfport; with its population losses following that storm, it was passed by Hattiesburg and South Haven, so Biloxi is now ranked fifth in the state. Biloxi has an elevation of 20 feet.
Biloxi has a subtropical climate that is heavily influenced by the
Gulf of Mexico. Winter days are mild and wet. Snow is extremely rare
in Biloxi. Summers are hot and humid, bearing the brunt of tropical
storms during the late summer to fall. Biloxi's record low of 10 degrees
F was recorded on January 24, 1963, and the record high of 104 degrees
F was recorded on August 29, 2000.
The beachfront of Biloxi lies directly on the Mississippi Sound, with barrier islands scattered off the coast and into the Gulf of Mexico. Keesler Air Force Base lies within the city and is home to the 81st Training Wing and the 403d Wing of the U.S. Air Force Reserve.
