1/24 – Rob Knight’s “Clearing Skies” Friday Morning Forecast


A rather nice winter day in store today: with mild temperatures and sunny skies. Tonight should have optimal radiational cooling to allow for chilly lows ranging from the mid-30s well inland to the mid-40s in the marine influenced areas near the coast. Mostly clear skies continue into first part of Saturday with upper level cloud invasion from the west ahead of next disturbance. At this time, it appears instability will be limited and primary mode will be showers, but a few t-storms will be possible in the warmer coastal waters.

Monday should be similar to today in that a short-lived high pressure area will move in the wake of the low pressure system for favorably drier and milder conditions. The following disturbance will move through Tuesday into Tuesday night with more showers accompanying its passage as the main dynamics should remain off the coast, but an isolated lightning strike or two may be possible once again closer to the coast. High pressure stays better established farther north for just fringe affects over the forecast area Thursday, with a warm projected to develop in the western gulf Thursday night. This brings the next period of unsettled weather as a series of impulses will traverse the area next weekend.

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.
