SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

We've had record-setting heat in South Mississippi over the last several days.

But, next week's strong cold front should bring the "finally fall" air into the area that we've been waiting so long for!

The big cold front that will send us back to fall looks to arrive early Monday, October 16.

While there could be a few hit or miss showers on Sunday and Monday as it moves in, the rainfall forecast is less than one inch across all of South MS.

Significantly cooler & drier air moves in with breezy north wind late Monday into Tuesday.

"South MS's temperatures should cool into the 50s on Tuesday morning and perhaps Wednesday morning, remaining seasonable for much of next week," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams on Friday. 

"It'll be perfect weather to finally make a bonfire, roast some marshmallows, sit out on the porch sipping on your favorite warm beverage," Williams continued.
