3/23 – Rob’s “Warm & Humid” Workweek Forecast


A boundary draped from northern Mississippi, to near Shreveport will stay north of the south Mississippi. Upper level high-pressure to the SE will slowly build and move closer to the area by mid-week/Thursday and Friday. This will allow for subsidence heating that pushes daytime temperatures abnormally hot, to near 90 in the more interior locations. Meanwhile, amplifying southern branch disturbance developing over the Pacific Southwest will become the next spring storm over the Plains States this weekend. It will push a surface front into the forecast area Saturday but meet considerable resistance from the upper ridge that would be over the eastern gulf by that time. Front should have enough integrity and upper flow support to move through Sunday. This is expected to spell cooling to near normal levels with continental high pressure influences.

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.
