1/21 – Rob’s “FREEZING TEMPERATURES” Morning Forecast


A freeze warning will ride through 9 am today but should not need to be re-issued for tonight since those conditions have already been met. Another cool day in store with some freezing temps once again tonight mainly inland (north of I-10) locations. Not a lot of change until Thursday with Wednesday being the transition day from dry and cool to moist and mild conditions.

A surface low-pressure and attendant cold front will visit Thursday with mainly showers over inland and most if not all thunderstorms over marine areas. There is a slight possibility that a few thunderstorms could move onshore over south Mississippi/SE LA but this will be more of the exception and not the rule. A dry slot will form behind the surface low and move through the area rapidly late Thursday afternoon into the early evening hours. This should help clear most of the rain out while clouds will linger a little longer then back to mild but nice conditions Friday through the weekend. The next system should begin to impact the area by the start of the new 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.
