5/16 – Rob Knight’s “Hot & Steamy” Midday Forecast


A surface low-pressure is still stationary this morning just south of the Pensacola area. The low-pressure will continue its slow movement northward later this morning and should be near Pensacola by this afternoon/evening. This will keep the area with a daily chance of showers/t-storms into next week.

Down-bursts numbers will peak today and are higher from west to east. Hail may be produced with these storms as well and while most will be small, there is still the potential for large enough hail to reach low end severe parameters.

Locations where rain falls will have a chance to get reduced visibility overnight from moderate fog provided all other variables are not prohibitive. This general scenario will play out daily with some days observing a few more storms than others well into next week. This will be the case with isolated strong or severe thunderstorms as well.

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.
