10/2 – Rob’s “Summer-Like” Afternoon Forecast


Summer does not want to give up. The pattern that has been with us for a while now will continue possibly even into mid-October.

Locally, the climatological norm would be for a drier pattern. But as the trend continues with deep easterlies, a few tropical waves will move through the marine areas at least. This will be fighting the strong ridge that will be setting up just inland, so showers/t-storms may not be capable of making their way very far inland. Another wave should make itself known by the weekend with another round of showers/t-storms developing over at least the western half of the area.

We will be well overdue for the first cold front of the year when it finally gets here. But for this forecast, that is simply too far out to have any confidence in any variable associated with it.

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.
