9/25 – Rob Knight’s “First Weekend of Autumn” Afternoon Forecast


Guidance generally was eroding the cloud deck too quickly so I had to adjust the sky cover a bit to slow it down. After what’s left of Beta exits our area, the Atlantic finally is quiet in the first time in the past month or so. Still not out of the woods for this year, but I’ll take any quiet weather we can get.

Dry air and fall like weather will be in the area before two cold fronts will be passing through the area. The first one is associated with a disturbance getting cutoff around eastern Texas. This one has some potential for showers and thunderstorms to close out the weekend into Monday.

The second cold front is forecast to reach the area late Tuesday and Wednesday and is associated with a much more vigorous digging upper level disturbance. This front looks to be dry for the most part with colder drier air moving late next 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.
