12/10 – Rob Knight’s “Cold Front” Morning Forecast


A Cold front just to the NW will move through south Mississippi by midday with cooling temperatures this afternoon.  We will actually see two periods of precipitation with this event. Showers associated with the cold frontal this morning and early afternoon, followed by another surge overnight. Precipitation is expected to linger through at least Wednesday morning before pushing south of the Interstate 10 corridor.

Another disturbance will move rapidly across the country on Thursday, and will return the threat of rain to the area by Thursday afternoon/night.

Frontal passage today at any location will be followed by a 10-15 degree drop, so calendar day highs near and northwest of McComb and Baton Rouge could actually occur prior to sunrise today. Cold air advection blowing across Lake Pontchartrain will produce gusty winds behind the front, but the forecast at this time is for conditions to remain just below Wind Advisory criteria. Beyond Friday morning, forecast confidence diminishes rapidly as medium range models significantly disagree on timing of another disturbance.

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.
