5/7 – Rob Knight’s “Big Changes Ahead” Morning Forecast


High pressure to the NW will shift quickly eastward over the next 24 hours and be off the Atlantic coast Friday morning. The next of a series of cold fronts moving southeastward will move through the area Friday night. Ahead of the front Friday afternoon, dew points rise into the mid-60s. T-storms to our northwest should intensify or redevelop as we reach max heating. The severe threat will stay to the west but we could see a low end threat for damaging winds as a few t-storms could collapse rapidly. The front should be clear of the land mass by about 9/10 pm Friday evening, but could be some post frontal showers overnight. Rain amounts should stay in the 1 inch range, and some may even stay dry.

Beyond that, no precipitation through the weekend as cooler and drier air returns. A Wind Advisory may be possibly Friday night into Saturday morning before winds ease.

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.
