Fall is delayed (until further notice)

South Floridians wait in eager anticipation ...

For the first front of cool continental air to arrive.

The problem as of late:

Starting in the 2010s, the arrival of the first official cold front has slipped from October to November.  Or in other words, it's happening later than normal.  The good news is a front of cooler air is finally on its way.  The bad news is that it will not count as an "official" front.

For that to happen, nighttime temperatures have to drop into the 50s for two consecutive nights.
