Temperatures will climb into the mid/upper 80s this afternoon as the lower humidity continues…

An abrupt transition to onshore flow regime and a return to sea breeze processes dictating the weather Saturday into next week. Rain chances will be more typical for this time of year, along with near normal warm marine influenced temperatures.

The Bermuda ridge pattern will become established for the extended portion of the forecast package, meaning daily sea breeze activity and humid conditions Sunday through next Thursday. A frontal zone north of the area Tuesday may enhance the rain chances on combination of gulf breeze and synoptic scale forcing. Models seem to suggest that though the front become diffuse, there may be enough influence to maintain enhanced rain chances for Wednesday, then settling back to gulf breeze pattern by later next week.

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.
