4/6 – Rob’s Monday Morning “Workweek” Forecast


Today through Wednesday the driving force across the region will be a ridge of high-pressure across the Gulf. This will not completely shut down rain chances however, it will not help things out either. This will also keep things above normal from a temperature standpoint. The building ridge should help keep things warm and dry for the most part today but a few light sprinkles could develop as low level moisture begins to surge back into the region.

As for Tuesday and Wednesday the biggest issue will be disturbances coming out of the southwest. The area will be on the periphery of the ridge and this could allow a few disturbances to ride it impacting the northern half of the area. We will have ample moisture to work with, combine that with day time heating and whatever extra support and we could see scattered of numerous afternoon showers and thunderstorms both Tuesday and Wednesday, mainly north of the 10/12 corridor.

Confidence in the forecast for late Thursday through the weekend is mixed. Questions really come more into timing and strength along with temperatures. Will a cold front move through Thursday night or will it remain north as we wait for a stronger system to swing it through late this weekend? Models will come into better agreement in the next day or so.

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.
