2/14 – Rob’s Valentine’s Day “Morning News” Forecast


At the surface, high pressure centered along the Atlantic Coast this morning has turned winds to the east and southeast with a weak stationary front to our south. This is advecting moist air back into the area with 60+ dew points returning. This has aided the development of low clouds and some fog.

The biggest forecast problem over the next 3 days will be the amount of sunshine we see. Today will also see a moist layer at the surface, making the best descriptor mostly cloudy, but would not be shocked to see a good bit of sunshine at times during the afternoon. Better chances of sunshine on Thursday and much of Friday, as it now appears that the next cold front will not affect the area through the daytime hours Friday. Any significant precipitation should stay away from the area, until perhaps late Friday afternoon across the northwest part of the region.

Above normal temperatures can be expected through Friday with highs in the 70s and potentially lower 80s away from marine influences. Water temperatures in the lower and middle 60s may hold temperatures down a little bit on the Mississippi coast.

Wild card for the weekend forecast is how far next cold front makes it into the area Friday night or Saturday. Model solution allows the front to reach the Gulf of Mexico. Best chances for precipitation with this system will be Saturday and Saturday night, and that would be mainly across northwest sections of the area. Some chance for precipitation on Sunday as front returns northward from where it stops on Saturday.

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.
