1/13 – Rob Knight’s “Sunny & Cold” Wednesday Afternoon Forecast


A strong upper low-pressure moving through the southern Great Lakes Thursday will push a cold front through the area Thursday night. Again, moisture is very limited, and any precipitation more vigorous than isolated showers of rain over land is not anticipated. Southwest winds should allow for a decent warmup on Thursday, but will be short-lived with the frontal passage Thursday night.

A very progressive upper level pattern will persist over the CONUS this weekend into the first half of next week. Saturday will bring northwest flow in place in the wake of a passing cold front. Weak cold air advection will result in temperatures slightly below average with highs in the 50s Saturday and lows in the 30s Saturday night.

The next trough axis and associated surface front will slide through the Gulf South Sunday into Sunday night. As a result, only a brief period of isolated showers is expected Sunday evening. Temperatures will remain cooler than average with highs in the 50s Sunday and lows in the 30s and lower 40s Sunday night.

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.
