9/24 – Rob Knight’s “Partial Clearing” Afternoon Forecast


Winds and rain will begin to become lesser of a problem for the area as the remnants of Beta move NE. This will help to slowly lower tide levels around the area by this afternoon. Tides will remain higher than normal but should not be much of an issue by Friday through the weekend. Another surge of moisture will move into the area over the weekend but this time it will be ahead of the first of two cold fronts. The first of these looks to move through Monday night into Tuesday morning and a stronger reinforcing cold front Wed night or Thursday of next week.

After the second frontal passage, overnight lows will drop into the mid 50s as daytime highs will climb into the low 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.
