3/27 – Rob Knight’s Final Weekend of March Forecast


Heat will continue to break records daily until Sunday when a cold front visits early that morning. A thin line of showers should accompany the front as it slows while approaching the coast. The front should stall at the coast late Sunday.

As a strong disturbance comes through the 4 corners and into the southern and central Plains Monday it will continue to develop over the Southern Plains. Ahead of it on Monday we will have a chance of seeing showers due to additional life through the atmosphere, with maybe even some enhancement from a sea-breeze due to strong southerly winds. It will be another warm one with highs once again in the upper 70s to mid-80s. Wed and Thu will be far cooler, both afternoon highs and morning lows with even the outside chance of locations seeing lows in the upper 40s Thu morning. Highs on Wednesday and Thursday will be in the lower to mid-70s which could be about 15 degrees cooler than what we have seen the last few days however, that is actually closer to normal.

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.
