4/16 – Rob’s “Clear & Cool” Tuesday Morning Forecast…


Surface high pressure is centered from the Carolinas to the central Gulf of Mexico with most of the local area now on the return flow side of the high.

We are basically looking at a single event heading into the latter part of the workweek as an upper-level disturbance will push a surface cold front through the region Thursday into Thursday night.

The Storm Predication Center (SPC) has our area under a “SLIGHT” threat for severity Thursday into Thursday night…with all forms of severity possibly.

It does seem like the worst of the SEVERE THREAT will stay north of the Hattiesburg area. The activity should be well east of the area by sunrise Friday with clearings skies through the day and windy conditions. The weekend will be sunny and dry.

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.
