1/6 – Rob’s “Sunny & Cool” Workweek Forecast


Surface high pressure is centered just off the southeast Louisiana coast early this morning, with a cold front extended from Virginia to the ArkLaTex region. The cold front to our north will move through the area tonight and early Tuesday morning. Little to no precipitation is expected with this front as moisture is very limited. Temps will cool back down to near to slightly above normal for Tuesday and Wednesday highs.

The onshore flow returns Wednesday afternoon or Wednesday night. Going to take a while to moisten up, but could begin to see a few showers with warm air advection by about Thursday night. A surface low-pressure will track north of the area with a trailing cold front this weekend. We will continue to track this as the week goes on as the threat for SEVERITY is being outlined by the Storm Prediction Center Friday into Saturday. The front will return north rather quickly Sunday afternoon or night: with another low pressure/cold front to move through on Tuesday. There is certainly the potential for a heavy rain event over the weekend. Current indications would put another 2-3 inches of rain across northern portions of the area. Fortunately, we’ve had some time to dry out a bit from last Thursday/Friday’s rain.

Ahead of the front, highs Thursday, Friday and potentially Saturday, will reach into the 70s in most areas, and can’t rule out a few spots getting real close to the 80 degree mark.

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.
