6/28 – Rob Knight’s “Midday News” Afternoon Forecast


Not much changing in the forecast today with conditions near climatology. In the upper portions of the atmosphere, a strong ridge of high-pressure is currently centered around the Texas Panhandle while a trough is racing east across the northeast CONUS. This leaves the area in an environment for temps to max out in the lower to mid-90s with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Coverage shouldn’t be too different from yesterday at around 30 to 50%.

Heat indices will once again top the triple digit mark…

Moving into the weekend and early next week, the upper ridge west of the region will track across the midsection of the country before heading into the Atlantic Ocean. As it makes its way towards the Appalachian Mountains, the local area will be in less of a subsidence region. This should allow for noticeable uptick in daytime activity with a slight drop in max temps. Models are in good agreement that this wetter trend Monday onward with precipitation chances possibly reaching the 70% range.

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.
