Gulfport set a record low temperature this morning of 41 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
The last record set was 43 degrees in 2005, said Shawn O'Neil, a meteorologist with the NWS in New Orleans.
A strong cold front moved through the area last weekend and is responsible for the cooler weather, O'Neil said.
But it's not going to last, he said.
Never miss a local story.
Temperatures will be back to 80 degrees and higher by Wednesday; however, no rain is expected until the weekend.
