SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - The official calendar start of summer is 29 days away... but, parts of south Mississippi are wasting no time warming up! The mercury in the thermometer at the Gulfport/Biloxi airport reached 90° for the first time this year on Thursday. 

Typically, late May is the time of year when coastal areas of south Mississippi finally warm to 90°.

Over the last 15 years, the earliest 90° day in Gulfport was May 3rd (2010). But, in 2009, Gulfport stayed below 90° until June 9th. How nice!

So far this year, the thermometer at WLOX in Biloxi has remained below 90°. And in recent years, it has taken until mid-June. But history tells us it won't be much longer... with the average 1st 90° there at May 29th (since 2000).

It's not record-breaking heat by any means. But we can expect summer-like conditions as the month of June begins.
