4/28 – Rob’s “Rain Ahead” Tuesday Morning Forecast


Surface high-pressure to our east will bring the return flow to the area. Winds will stay elevated through the next 36 hours with a cold front moving through the area Wednesday through the day. A disturbance over Oklahoma will track east through today.

The disturbance over northwest CONUS will dive southeast and intensify the main front over the northern and central plains this afternoon. Moisture will pool along a shallow slope frontal boundary…as a result, will high rain chances with more showers and scattered embedded storms along the front Tuesday night into Wednesday. A few strong to severe storms in a line are possible with hail and strong to damaging wind gusts being the main factor but cannot rule out an isolated tornado early Wednesday morning. Showers and storms will linger through Wednesday day period as isolated rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches can be expected. Dry conditions are expected through Thursday through the weekend.

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.
