2/28 – Rob’s “Midday News” Afternoon Forecast


DENSE FOG has developed along the coast with a weak cold front to move into the local area this afternoon. This boundary will be the focus for increasing showers and thunderstorms.

From a temperature perspective, above normal highs will continue. Showers and isolated storms will continue into the evening hours with coverage pulling back after midnight. Although cooler air will try to come in, cloud cover should hold temps from falling too much. We should get a break from the rain Friday but going into the weekend will be a different story. The next big impact will be Sunday with a frontal passage. Leading up that on Saturday, showers will begin developing as moisture begins surging northward. Mid 60-degree dew-points along with temps warming up to almost 80 will be conducive for scattered to numerous showers. A few thunderstorms will be possible but shouldn’t be too many around. Sunday on the other hand, is looking much more impactful than Saturday. A strong cold front will move through late Sunday afternoon.

A few days of quiet weather will finally return early next week as post frontal air mass moves in. Temperatures will drop significantly as well. Expect a few days of highs only in the 50s and lows in the 30s to 40s.

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.
