11/15 – Rob’s “Clearing Skies” Friday Morning Forecast


Clouds continue to clear out from northwest to southeast with cool temperatures. The forecast for the next 3 days is quiet. Saturday night into Sunday we will likely have weak high-pressure in response to another disturbance dropping across the Rockies and into the Plains. We may begin to see some rather decent high cloud coverage Sunday as the upper-level moisture flow intensifies across east TX and LA. This will have an impact on high temps Sunday…keep it in the lower to mid-60s at this time

Overall the forecast continues to look quiet next week. The one question before was rain chances overnight Sunday and into the morning hours Monday but that is looking less likely now as models have really converged on a dry forecast. Even with the strength in question given how dry the atmosphere will be going into Sunday night.  For now, I’m going to remove all mention of rain from the forecast for that time frame. The rest of the week will be dry and quiet with high-pressure expected over the central CONUS by Tuesday night and then return flow setting back up Wednesday. This would suggest a decent moderation of the atmosphere over our area with near normal temps around the middle and 2nd half of the week.

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.
