1/11 – Rob Knight’s “Wet, Cold & Windy” Mid-Morning Forecast


Surface temperatures remain above freezing which has kept snow potentials low. As of now, saturation in the upper levels have favored only rain precipitation for the area so no snow accumulation is expected. Rain will begin to diminish this morning, but expect low clouds and strong cold air advection to keep conditions cold and cloudy for the entire day. Breezy winds out of the north will help maintain wind chill in the 30s with overnight lows at or near freezing. These freezing low temperatures are mainly along and north of I-10.

Clouds should finally clear out bringing in some sunshine on Tuesday; however temperatures will still remain fairly low. Expect another night of freezing temperatures for the same areas late Tuesday going into Wednesday morning with the help of radiational cooling and light winds.

Temperatures should begin to steadily increase back into the 60s by at least Thursday. A cold front is expected to move across the area at some point on Thursday night into Friday morning. Confidence remains low that we will receive light precipitation behind this front if any. Otherwise, dry and cool conditions are expected to prevail through this forecast period.

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.
