11/8 – Rob’s “Veterans Day Weekend” Forecast


Cloud cover over the area will continue this afternoon with rapid clearing around sunset. The weekend will bring a warm-up with the next cold front expected to move through around 7 pm Monday. Any thunderstorm activity should rush through during the same time frame. Once that line moves through, moisture flow will continue over the front but a deep dry layer will move in fast enough to cut off chances of precip by mid-morning Tuesday.

There is a slight chance that a mix of wintry precip will occur around Hattiesburg just as the last of the moisture is moving out, but even if this occurs, it is not expected to cause any issues. Strong cold air behind the front will bring the 1st FREEZE of the season by Wednesday morning.

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.
