1/11 – Rob’s Friday-Eve “Cold Front” Forecast


Winds stayed up overnight so this morning has bought more low clouds than fog. Onshore flow will have us pretty warm for today with a few showers possible especially this afternoon ahead of a system that is expected to move through the region tonight. Rain chances increase throughout the day, with the greatest chance of rain overnight. The threat of thunderstorms is low as the instability is lacking, but I have included a slight chance of thunder in the forecast tonight with frontal passage. Cold air advection will quickly kick in behind the cold front, as daytime highs Friday will be at least 20 degrees cooler. Struggling to reach 50 degrees. Clearing skies Friday evening and cold pool will result in lows dropping into the upper 20s and lower 30s across the entire forecast area Friday night.

We will be back into the freezer for overnight lows over the weekend and into early next week. A reinforcing cold front should sweep through on Saturday, as High-pressure will build across the region. Highs will only climb into the middle to upper 40s both Saturday and Sunday, but lows Saturday night should fall into the lower to middle 20s over northern half of the region, and the upper 20s and lower 30s elsewhere. A HARD FREEZE is likely Saturday night into Sunday morning.

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.
