1/23 – Rob’s “Back To Seasonal Conditions” Forecast


Today as high-pressure begins its dominance; expect sunny skies with thin upper-level clouds moving across the region. Temperatures may dip barely to the freezing level Wednesday night for southwest Mississippi but the majority of the area should remain with a cold Wednesday night but will remain above freezing.

Models continue to struggle with this gulf low feature as where it will make its approach. One model has this staying well out over the gulf keeping most of the heavy rainfall and potentially severe weather locked up with it from near the coast to well offshore. A few models would like to bring this feature farther north into southeast Louisiana and coastal Mississippi. These slight differences will mean a lot in the coming days. Especially since one way is barely any rain across the area and the other brings localized flooding.

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.
