6/14 – Rob’s “Status-Quo” Afternoon Forecast


Hot temperatures (HOTTER HEAT INDICES) providing lift is beginning to pop scattered t-storms across the forecast area.

High moisture content will remain unchanged Friday and Saturday but will begin to decrease on Father’s Day Sunday will lower rain chances just a tad. Otherwise, it’s a pretty typical summer-time pattern with seemingly endless outflow boundaries available for storm enhancement. Most will be quite short lived over any one place but brief heavy rainfall and minor street flooding is possible today and Friday.

High-pressure west of the forecast area will track ENE towards the mid-Mississippi Valley by Sunday. A westerly moving plume of tropical moisture coming out of the Caribbean will move towards the Texas coast. The NHC continue to give this tropical wave a 20% probability of development over the next 5 days as it moves into the Bay of Campeche.

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.
