9/16 – Chief Meteorologist Rob Knight’s “Tracking Sally” Morning Forecast


Hurricane Sally will continue to pull further away from the forecast area today. Ongoing tropical storm conditions across the far eastern portions of coastal Mississippi will gradually improve through the day. In the wake of this system, a decent cold front will sweep to the south and bring drier and cooler conditions to the region.  The front is expected to bring scattered showers and a few thunderstorms to the area Thursday into Friday as it sinks south across the area. Temperatures will remain cooler than average with highs in the upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s expected.  Dew-points will also be lower with readings in the 60s and lower 70s expected. Overall, a fairly pleasant weather regime can be expected to take hold tomorrow and remain in place through Friday.

Temperatures will remain cooler than average through early next week on the back of deep northeast flow. Highs should only warm into the lower to middle 80s and overnight lows will cool into the 60s. Dew-points will also be lower in the upper 50s and lower 60s, and a taste of fall like weather can be anticipated.

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.
