5/7 – Rob’s “Warm & Humid” Tuesday Morning Forecast


Enjoy the dry weather today, because it may be the last dry day across the area for a while.

An upper-level area of low-pressure will get kicked out of the southwest which will produce a southwesterly upper flow across the area, as the atmosphere begins to get very saturated. By Thursday afternoon, a cold front will lag from near Chicago and the trailing to near Memphis and Houston. With high-pressure building just to our east, we’ll see the dry weather hang around one more day, even as onshore flow becomes more established. We could see some showers or a few thunderstorms west of the area today…especially this afternoon as the airmass continues to destabilize. Wednesday a will bring the same scenario.

The larger threat will be Thursday as secondary disturbance moves through the area as the airmass will be even more unstable than Wednesday.

The SPC has a MARGINAL RISK for Thursday is certainly warranted from the McComb and Baton Rouge areas westward.

Locally heavy rain could also be an issue late in the day Thursday in the far west with current indications around 1 inch.

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.
