To know what time it is someplace else, one first needs to know the time where they are. Mississippi is located in the U.S. Central Time Zone. If you live on the east coast and are part of the Eastern Time Zone, like New York, Mississippi would be one hour behind you. So if it’s noon in New York, it’s 11:00 in the morning in Mississippi. If you live in the Mountain Time, like Colorado, Mississippi would be one hour ahead of you. And finally, if you live on the west coast, like California, Mississippi would be two hours ahead of you.
