12/4 – Rob’s “Clearings Skies & Breezy” Friday Morning Forecast


An increasingly complex upper level pattern has developed with a main trough over the Great Lakes, low-pressure over Missouri and another west of West Texas. The low centered near MO is driving the cold front currently tracking east through the region. Cold air advection behind the front will limit warming today with few, if anyone, seeing temps rise above 60 degrees this afternoon.

The MO low will be drawn eastward with the main trough over the Great Lakes on Friday night into Saturday. This will reinforce below normal temps and keep the local area dry through this weekend. The low currently west of Texas will track across that state, moving into LA and MS late this weekend. A little moisture will get drawn up into the local area. Not expecting much more than some light rain at this time.

The extended portion of the forecast package will be essentially a persistence forecast of dry conditions under northwest to north flow regime influences through next Thursday. Temperatures will remain seasonally cooler to colder than normal with lows mainly in the 30s to lower 40s each day and highs generally in the 50s but warming into the 60s by later 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.
