5/14 – Rob’s “Sunny & Warm” Tuesday Morning Forecast


A much welcomed dry stretch continues early this week, with all-around pleasant and comfortable temperatures across northern Gulf coast states. Today will be very similar to yesterday with mostly sunny skies and no rain. Only feature worth mentioning will be a weakening upper-level shortwave riding the zonal flow aloft across the northern Gulf coast. This feature may help spark some isolated showers/storms well offshore in outer marine zones later today through Wednesday, but will quickly dissipate before upper-level ridging anchors itself over the MS Valley region late week.

The next weather maker will make its way in by later this weekend, as the aforementioned ridge eventually pulls east of the area. On Saturday, continued hot afternoon temperatures will support perhaps a bit more widespread afternoon convection in the same areas. But by Sunday, this is where long-range guidance splits on the idea of dragging a cold front through the area or not. Either way, scattered showers/storms may still advect east well ahead of the front regardless of its eventual passage across the area.

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.
