12/26 – Rob Knight’s “Cloudy & Humid” Morning Forecast


High pressure is currently along the eastern Seaboard with the moisture flow back in the area. The pattern will allow the moisture axis to continually increase with higher values over the west half of the region. Surface high pressure will retreat east as a cold front moves east across the desert SW. Isolated showers will remain in the forecast today and increase in coverage slightly tonight and Friday.

An area of low-pressure is expected to lift northeast with dry air moving into this system Saturday condensing the moisture flow across Arkansas and east Texas. Models are showing a slow progression of this system Saturday night. This will allow some time for marginal instability to migrate north across southwest Mississippi and parts of east central Louisiana. With the main system starting to die off Sunday, we will see widespread showers with embedded thunderstorms across northwest parts of forecast area Sunday morning…one or two strong cells northwest of the southern 6 counties. The threat of t-storms may diminish as the cold front and moisture axis push east on Sunday.

Dry weather will occur Monday and possibly Tuesday. Upper level flow will remain southwest and the next system will advect moisture and the chance of rain over the area late Tuesday and Wednesday of next 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.
