12/13 – Rob’s “Warm & Sunny” Weekend Forecast


Cloud cover and light rain will continue through this evening before partial clearing begins. Increasing subsidence throughout the atmosphere will result in a sunnier and warmer weekend. However, there will be the risk of some radiation fog forming tonight as the surface high builds in. Temperatures will rebound back to more normal levels over the weekend with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s and lows in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

A cold front will sweep into the forecast area Monday night then push through the coastal waters and into the central Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday. At this time, instability looks sufficient to allow for thunderstorm development. At this time, the risk of severe thunderstorm development looks to be minimal at best. If any area see severe thunderstorms form, it would be across portions of Southwest Mississippi. Temperatures will warm into the middle and upper 70s Monday afternoon in advance of the approaching front.

Colder air will move in Tuesday as rain departs to the NE.  A light freeze will be possible both Tuesday and Wednesday nights for most of the area. Only areas along the immediate coast are forecast to remain just above freezing in the middle to upper 30s.

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.
