01/15 – Rob’s “Warm and Humid” Wednesday Morning Forecast


The one variable that did change yesterday to keep fog out of the area during most of Tuesday evening was lift. The fog that formed lifted due to heating first, then as the area just to the north became a shield of showers and thunderstorms, this moisture was able to become transported northward where even better lift was occurring.

The moisture moving northward quickly took its place over the area causing fog to form once again this morning. A low level cloud deck has hit the surface as we move through the morning hours.

Again, this fog will lift into a low level ceiling as temps warm once again. Record highs are not always expected, and yesterday they were broken in Gulfport, New Orleans, and Mobile.

Temperatures will have the potential to do the same today if the low level cloud deck can clear with enough time for some heating to occur. The only thing that won’t be as prevalent will be the area of showers and thunderstorms to the north. This area will be even farther north today.

A cold front over the central Plains will move toward the area and stall just offshore Thursday night and begin to move back over the area Friday night as a warm front.

Some rain will be around with patchy fog Thursday and Thursday night, then possibly again for Friday night ahead of the next cold front that should move through Saturday evening cleaning the area out of the rain and fog and dropping back to more seasonal temps for much 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.
