10/16 -Rob Knight’s “Spotty Rain” Friday Morning Forecast


A weak cold front is moving through the area this morning bringing spotty light rain and areas of patchy fog. As the front clears south Mississippi mid/late morning, skies will clear very quickly as strong high-pressure and colder/drier air to the NW begins to moving into the region. A tightening gradient will have winds from the north gusting into the upper teens to low 20 mph range through this evening before calming.

Clear skies overnight will lead to good radational cooling and coupled with a north wind, temperatures will drop into the mid/upper 40s inland to 50 degrees closer to the beach. A less humid air mass will dominate through much of the weekend. By Sunday, a warmer flow will begin in advance of the next system approaching from the NW…but will stall to the NW until early/mid-week next week. For the most part after this morning, rain-free conditions will continue through Wednesday.

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.
