12/1 – Rob Knight’s “Sunny & Cold” Afternoon Forecast


An upper level disturbance bringing snow showers to the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys will continue to sit and then gradually move slowly east…lifting and moving into the Mid-Atlantic states by tonight and into Wednesday. This will allow for a moderating trend of the cold air mass that is currently in place. Surface high will briefly build in overhead today and then slide off to our east by tonight. A brief warming trend on Wednesday as a return flow to follow suit.

Another amplified system will dig into the Texas panhandle by Wednesday night. An associated cold front will bring showers and possibly an isolated thunderstorm Wednesday night as the boundary approaches from the west. Unsettled weather will continue into Thursday as the frontal boundary creeps very slowly eastward. Upper low will eventually drift slowly east-southeast by Friday bringing cooler temperatures as it will eventually pull the front through the area.

A drying trend with max Temps only rebounding into the 50s on Friday as low clouds will potentially linger. This will bring with it cold air advection once again on Friday. However, values will be much higher than the current cold snap.

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.
