1/20 – Rob Knight’s “VERY COLD” Morning Forecast


Freezing temps are expected for several locations north of the interstate this morning…but this will be short lived. Tonight may be different as below freezing temps should be found over the majority of the area. The below freezing temps will last the longest over the northern half of the area and could be from 6 to 8 hours. South of the interstate locations should get to or just below freezing should only be 2 to 3 hours Tuesday morning. Another round of freezing temps will be found again Wednesday morning but will be short lived only a few hours.

The next system that should affect the area starting Thursday through Thursday night and clear the area by early Friday. The issue here is where the surface low transits the area. At the moment, there are differences in models either bringing the low just inland and moves it east or keeps the low along the immediate coast. If the low moves along the immediate coast, expect isolated thunderstorms just inland with moderate rainfall while keeping all strong/severe weather over the coastal waters. We will keep tracking this system and will have a better handle on it by Tuesday night.

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.
