11/29 – Rob’s “Midday News” Warmer Forecast


The next weather system for the local area is taking shape over the TX and OK panhandles. This system is will draw moisture northward from the Gulf of Mexico as it moves eastward tomorrow. As it draws the moisture inland, there will be quite a gradient between drier areas to the east and more moist areas to the west. Expect a similar gradient tomorrow in the rain chances, with higher chances across the area. The surface low will continue its eastward progress tonight night, and will force a weak cold front into and through the area Thursday.

Rain chances will be highest Thursday, but even then, only looking at about 40 percent chance of precip…with only a slight drop in temps after passage. There are some differences showing up in the guidance going into the weekend and beyond. I have not strayed far from the inherited forecast, which appears to be a bit closer to the current model solution. Next system looks to affect the local area during the early/middle part of next week.

Chief Meteorologist Rob Knight is a familiar face along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, having been an on-air personality in the local area since 2005. Rob is originally from New York, but traveled and forecasted weather around the world as an active duty member of the United States Air Force since 1992. In 2005, after 13 years in the USAF, Rob made the transition back to the public sector as an on-air meteorologist, six months prior to Hurricane Katrina. Rob says “Meteorology is not a job for me, it’s my passion. I’m fortunate enough to have been in this wonderfully challenging field since 1992. I solve mysteries. The atmosphere gives you clues and you have to figure out what it’s going to do. How fun is that?” Rob holds a Bachelor's degree in Meteorology from Florida Institute of Technology, along with several military degrees. He is also a member of the National Weather Association. When his attention isn’t focused on weather, it’s on real estate. Rob and his wife own a local realty. Rob loves to spend time volunteering in the local community, and often works with the Boys and Girls Club, the Humane Society, and several others. On a cool south Mississippi Saturday morning, Rob is usually at one of the many beautiful golf courses.
