An upper-level trough of low pressure will send a cold front into Southern Mississippi today with scattered showers and storms along it. The cold front will be close enough to set off a few showers and thunderstorms near us today - mainly toward Baton Rouge and into South Mississippi. It will be a little warmer and more humid with a mix of sun and clouds. High temperatures will be back into the lower 80s.
