9/13 – Rob Knight’s “Hot & Humid” Friday Morning Forecast


It’s another warm and quiet day across the region, state and viewing area. Expect more of the same heading through the weekend as temperatures inland will reach into the mid-90s. High-pressure will begin to weaken going into the weekend but models still show an increase in precipitation chances this weekend as easterly winds over the Gulf and just daytime heating could trigger a few showers and storms this weekend.

The fly in the ointment continues to be what happens with PTC Nine. The current NHC track has it moving NW and approaching the Florida east coast Saturday evening with landfall around the Daytona beach area going into Sunday morning as a tropical storm. If this is the case we will remain dry as a predominant N/NE wind will affect the Mississippi Gulf coast.

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.
