SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

A cold front pushed southward through the Gulf Coast early Tuesday which could bring the coolest air we've felt all summer season.

Behind the front, dry air began rushing into the region on Tuesday morning. Many may actually notice the air gradually becoming drier and drier over the course of the day. It will be less hot with highs near 90 and no rain chance.

Early Wednesday morning will be the first time most will notice the effects of the cold front. At that time, expect some of the coolest air we will have felt since the beginning of summer, with morning low temperatures in the mid 60s along the coast, low 60s (upper 50s??) inland.

The last time the Gulfport airport reported a low temperature in the mid 60s was May 26th of this year. 

It's not winter cold temperature. But, it will be quite refreshing to get a taste of fall air as the summer season begins to wrap up. 

Expect the cooler / drier air to stick around on Thursday and Friday too with morning lows in the 60s and afternoon highs in the upper 80s along the coast. By the weekend, we MAY finally see a return to southerly flow off the Gulf which would pump in more of that "lovely" humidity we're so used to feeling.
