2/21 – Rob Knight’s “Warm/Humid” Wednesday Afternoon Forecast


It’s a WARM/HUMID day as a ridge of high pressure is currently centered north of the Bahamas and will remain there through most of this week. The west side of this high pressure extends into the Bay of Campeche, with coverage of rain/t-storms potential through the week. This will bring rain potential 70% in far northwestern zones to 40% along the MS coast. It appears most of the convection will not develop until later in the day but scattered showers are certainly possible this morning…with a few t-storms this afternoon.

A slight retreat of the stalled front to the NW is likely on Thursday with rain chances falling back into the 20-40% range Friday as the front retrogrades. The front will finally push through the area Saturday night with slightly cooler temps Sunday through early next week as rain potential will stay elevated.

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.
