11/25 – Rob Knight’s “Thanksgiving Week” Forecast


High pressure centered near to the NW will shape the forecast through Tuesday. Today will bring a few upper-level clouds with the humid flow beginning this afternoon.

Surface high-pressure will shift east today allowing onshore flow to bring moisture back to the area overnight tonight. Rain chances start to ramp up Tuesday late afternoon, but this would only be rain…with the best dynamic will be well to the north of the area. There looks to be only a window of maybe 3 hours or so just ahead of the front where conditions become favorable for t-storm activity. This would primarily be late evening tomorrow night into the first part of Wednesday. The SPC is carrying a marginal risk west of Interstate 55 for Tuesday.

The front won’t get very far south of Mississippi late Wednesday, but should be far enough to get precipitation out of the area by Wednesday evening. High-pressure will build into the northern Gulf of Mexico behind Wednesday’s system for a few days until the next system rolls out of the Rockies. Thanksgiving Day will actually see fairly close to normal temperatures, although there may be a fair amount of low cloud cover. Friday and Saturday will be unseasonably warm with some locations potentially reaching 80 degrees either or both days. Timing of the next system is coming a little more into agreement with a frontal passage Saturday night or Sunday 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.
