Autumn air fights back in early November

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

The calendar says we should be wearing sweaters & drinking piping hot pumpkin-flavored beverages. Instead, this week we've been eating ice-cream cones & popsicles by the pool or at the beach. 

Yes, this unseasonable heat - which is hot on the heels of a warmer-than-normal October - has chased us into early November.

While it hasn't been dangerously hot, it has certainly made it less comfortable for typical late-fall outdoor activities. In fact, several record high temperatures have been broken over the last week.

Whether you're waiting on pins & needles to break out your scarf & coat collection, or perhaps pining to start a "holiday" bonfire, we lack the required chill to make such events feel as enjoyable as usual.

A cold front is expected to pass through the Gulf Coast region on Friday. Behind it, autumn air will blast into the WLOX area just in time for November's first weekend.

"While it's possible for us to see another warm up before the month's end, climate history indicates that we should really expect these temperatures in the 80s to go away for good before Thanksgiving," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "For reference, last year's final 80 degree day was on Nov. 6, and late November's normal high temperatures are in the mid 60s for South Mississippi."
