12/6 – Rob Knight’s “Gray & Mild” Friday Morning Forecast


A weak disturbance is currently racing across Oklahoma and will continue through the lower Mississippi Valley today, bringing a few showers across the area. Coverage should be around 30-40% but limited moisture should provide for less than a tenth of an inch accumulation. Before the cooler air moves in with the front associated with this disturbance, temps should warm quite a bit today. The cooler air will move in tonight into Saturday, but with the quick speed of this system, cool temps will only last for a day before beginning to moderate. Sunday will bring a continuation of Saturday, albeit slightly warmer. We could be a few lingering showers in the coastal waters as the cold front stalls in the northern Gulf. Most should remain offshore but possible to have isolated showers reach coastal counties.

A much more amplified upper level disturbance will move into the mid-section of the country Monday, before lifting northeast Wednesday. A cold front associated with this feature will move through the forecast area Tuesday morning. Expecting showers ahead of, along, and post frontal. The rain should quickly exit Wednesday with the rest of the forecast period yielding no to low rain chances and temps running several degrees below normal.

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.
