3/6 – Rob Knight’s “Daylight Saving Time Begins” Weekend Forecast


Expect similar to slightly cooler highs to yesterday, maxing out generally in the mid-60s. Temps tonight should fall pretty hard as clear skies and light winds will lead to strong radiational cooling. Thinking is that areas north of the interstate will drop into the upper 30s with coastal areas in the low 40s. An upper level high-pressure will quickly pass over the Gulf Coast Saturday into Sunday. Temperatures will respond Sunday and Monday, moderating back into the 70s. A disturbance following on the heels of the ridge will bring the return of rain chances Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning.

The bulk of instability and shear will remain north of the area. I’m expecting mostly showers with decreasing coverage from north to south over the area. Mid-week will be a fight between upper high-pressure and weak disturbances moving through. Thus could be dry or scattered showers from one day to the next. Either way, temps will be well above normal with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

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.
