7/10 – Rob Knight’s “Midday News” Afternoon Forecast


A typical summertime convective regime is developing across the region. An area of upper-level high pressure is currently centered just east of the Rocky Mountains will slowly migrate towards the MO/AR/TN/KY intersection from today to Friday. This will leave the region/area in a fairly open to Gulf moisture.

The combination of a lack of direct strong subsidence, ample moisture in place, and daytime heating will result in an active forecast period. During this time frame, rain chances will range from at lowest around 30-40% and at highest, 60-70%. This type of coverage and no ridge aloft should keep high temps quite close to climatological normal.

Rain potential will drop off to about 20% Thursday into the weekend as an area of high-pressure will move to our east.

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.
