1/3 – Rob Knight’s “Rainfall Moving In” Midday Forecast


The warm front is now north as an area of low-pressure and a trailing cold front moves closer to south Mississippi. light rain will continue moving in from the SW becoming heavier late afternoon/tonight

A very saturated environment will lead to more rain, and with an already saturated ground across the area, FLASH FLOODING could certainly occur.

A dry slot will move into the area around midnight tonight, which should end the threat of widespread heavy rain. There could be a little bit of wrap-around light rain across southwest Mississippi Friday morning, but other than that, dry weather is expected through the weekend after tonight. Temperature forecast for today will be totally dependent on whether a location gets into the warm sector or not. Warm sector highs will be in the upper 60s to around 70, while areas remaining in the cool sector will likely not get much past 60…and could remain in the 50s.

Only notable weather in the extended period will be the passage of a cold front in the Monday night/Tuesday morning time range. This system won’t have much in the way of moisture to work with, and will only carry minimal precip chances for Monday night. The air mass both ahead of and behind front is of Pacific origin, so above normal temperatures will be the result. Monday and Tuesday should be the warmest days with high temps into the 70s.

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.
