4/2 – Rob Knight’s “Moderating Temperatures” Morning Forecast


We will see temperatures begin to slowly moderate with highs in the mid-70s with a few upper 70s around the region. We may actually see rain trying to nudge in from the west early Saturday morning. Saturday rain chances look a little better but not great. The high-pressure over the CONUS will begin to slide to the east and this may allow a little better mid-level support to move in. Deeper moisture along with whatever t-storms activity to the west should allow for a few showers to push into the area.

Rain chance still don’t look great heading into the night and Sunday as high-pressure over the western Gulf could build across the area driving whatever disturbances coming from the Pacific to our north thus keeping us dry. A weak disturbance to the north may settle into the area to bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday ahead of a stronger frontal boundary, along with influences from what should be a better gulf breeze by middle of next week. Temperatures should be quite warm during the extended portion with Tuesday and Wednesday possibly challenging 90F in a few locations. Morning lows will start near normal levels but warm with increasing humidity middle of the 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.
