No, it's 80F out right now.  That's unusual.  

 

ETA, you might not be so wrong:

80 in November is pretty unusual, for sure. But yeah...as that article points out, it takes at least one frost to put a dent in the mosquito season, and many places haven't had even one yet. I feel like they'll also come back out if there's a long enough time between first frost and a second cold spell.

yep that's what happens.  first freeze (at least since i've moved back to DC) seems to be that 2nd/3rd week of Nov (looks like that'll be the case this year as well).  But then below freezing temps are still pretty infrequent until after Christmas, so they come back.

Urban areas of the metro really only have like 6-8 weeks where temps reliably get below freezing, which is kind of insane.  By late Feb/March the mosquitos are back lol.
