4/19 – Rob’s “Midday News” Afternoon Forecast


In the wake of this mornings cold front, surface high pressure building in from the north will maintain these below normal temps through Friday.

The next weather impact will be coming this weekend. An area of low-pressure will pass closer than normal to the area, right across Arkansas and northern MS/AL Sunday night. This will bring a surface low with cold front through the area. SPC outlook has the area as marginal risk for severe storms and that seems quite appropriate. The bulk of convection will impact the area Sunday with precipitation chances at 70 to 80% range.

Cooler and drier air will filter into the region Monday. There could be a few lingering showers north of I-12 as mid/upper level moisture wraps around the upper low before it ejects eastward. Upper ridge will quickly move in Tuesday through Thursday. This will result in a quick rebound of temperatures.

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.
