1/2 – Rob Knight’s “FOGGY” Afternoon Forecast


Areas of PATCHY DENSE FOG continues…

Moisture flow will continue to move into the area from the south as a stationary front is overhead. The bulk of the heaviest rain will pass across east Texas, northern Louisiana, and Mississippi. Locally across much the area, showers should be more scattered in nature compared to locations farther north. That wide swath of rain will move into the area tonight as an upper-level low pressure starts quickly moving east, reaching the southern Texas Panhandle tomorrow morning. This low will track right across the area Thursday afternoon, bringing with it numerous showers. This path would keep the area north of the warm sector, so no severe weather to contend with.

But it will mean the potential for heavy rain, and with an already saturated ground, FLASH FLOODING will be possible.

Models are in general agreement of the potential for 1 to 3 inches. Strong high pressure will build into the area Friday behind the cold front coming through in the morning. Good radiational cooling from clear skies Friday night combined with falling dew-points will allow temps to drop into the upper-30s to lower 40s across the forecast area. That will pretty much be it for the cold temps, with temps quickly moderating each day this weekend…but finally a few days with no rain chances.

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.
