7/24 – Rob Knight’s “Beautiful” Late July Forecast


This morning the cold front south has become stationary.

Temperatures and dew points are running 5-7 degrees lower this morning than at the same time yesterday.

That being said, we’re still talking dew points from the upper 60s to mid-70s, and temperatures in the 70s.

Upper trough remains pretty much in place over the next 3 days, and don`t really see a strong enough impulse to drive much in the way of convection with drier air in the area. Any convection through Thursday should be very isolated, and I don’t plan on carrying a mention of precipitation over land. Temperatures, as well as humidity will be a bit lower today than the last several days.

As eastern upper trough weakens at the end of the week, it will leave a shear axis in place over the northern Gulf of Mexico through Friday into Saturday. Beyond that, troughing becomes established over the Mississippi River Valley, and moisture levels will gradually increase during the weekend into early next week. This will be reflected in an increase in precipitation chances to the 30 percent range by Sunday, and a bit higher beyond that.

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.
