6/4 – Rob’s Monday Morning/Workweek Forecast


Subtle changes are in the forecast for today as a cold front has made it into the area yet. Models are better agreement now that the front stays closer to the coast today.

This should allow for a focus for some shower and thunderstorm activity today and therefore introduced some chances of rain into the forecast, especially south of the interstate.

A few of the storms could be on the strong side with some locally heavy rainfall possible but the severe weather threat for today is on the low side.

Not much has changed for the rest of the work week as model differences are focused on the positions of ridges and troughs. Due to the differences and the development of the exact positioning of those features, rain chances fluctuate through the week. Overall though, rain chances will be slightly above normal summertime chances.

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.
