12/2 – Rob Knight’s “Warmer” Wednesday Mid-Morning Forecast


A return to near normal temperatures today with dry conditions continuing as upper level and surface ridge briefly hold in place out ahead of a massive closed low that is slowly spinning over the panhandle of Texas. This will bring a slow moving cold front towards central Louisiana. This will bring an increased chance of showers and possibly a few thunderstorms Thursday. Cold front will push through on Thursday night bringing another round of below normal temperatures with highs only rebounding into the 50s on Friday. No freezing temperatures expected this round with lows holding in the upper 30s Friday night in the typically cooler forecast locations. As a result dry conditions with a slow warming trend will result by Saturday afternoon.

The extended period will be a dry one with some continuation of continental air mass re-enforcement on amplifying trough pattern across the eastern U.S. A strong surge of cold air arrives Monday as the base of the trough swings through the Appalachians. Upper level high-pressure will move over the western to central Gulf States by Tuesday to align with surface high pressure to maintain strong subsidence dryness through middle of next week. Temperatures should remain on the cooler side of normal for the duration but above freeze concerns, though most mornings should still reach the mid to upper 30s in interior locations.

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.
