10/3 – Rob’s Tuesday Morning (Improving) Forecast


Precipitation chances will begin to come down today as drier air located over northern Florida and Georgia begins to move into our area. The drier air mass will move into the area starting with coastal Mississippi by noon today and Baton Rouge by 7 pm. This will cap the environment and bring rain chances back to seasonal conditions. This won`t hold true for gulf offshore locations. Precipitation should stay low as we approach the weekend with a few passing showers possible from day to day.

An open tropical wave roughly along 75W longitude from near the Bahamas into the central Caribbean will move slowly west and into the gulf as early as Thursday night into Friday. The portion of this wave over the Caribbean will be the main portion of this feature. The portion of this wave north of the Greater Antilles is being shown by models to break away and move north into Florida while remaining rather weak. This will bring elevating rain potential for the weekend…especially Sunday into early 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.
