12/13 – Rob’s “Roller Coaster Ride” Wednesday Forecast


In the wake of yesterdays cold front, it’s a FRIGID stat to the day…

A continental (Dry) air mass that’s already in place will be slow to modify. Temperatures today will not be much different from yesterday…still below normal. It’s not until Thursday, when temperatures will begin to warm in advance of a couple of cold front which will affect the area through the weekend.

The first cold front will be moving through Friday morning as a somewhat weak upper trough swings across the Mississippi Valley. The sub-tropical jet will be carrying Pacific moisture across Mexico to the northern Gulf coast as this front moves into the Gulf. It appears the timing of this moisture will be such that showers don`t develop along the front until it reaches the coast. So, have kept pops mainly restricted to areas from New Orleans southward.

Sunday will bring a more vigorous cold front to the area…with showers as well as thunderstorms along with the SLIGHT THREAT for a few t-storms to become SEVERE.

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.
