5/19 – Rob’s “Sunny & Warm” Tuesday Morning Forecast


A cold front with not much in the way of cooling will stall over the area this evening. This will help thunderstorms that develop stay along the same area producing some training. The next possible issue will be strong gusty winds that could be strong to even severe. SPC has the area in a marginal risk and this looks valid. This activity will also be capable of producing heavy rainfall as they move over much of the same areas. The boundary will slowly move south tonight and rest along the coast for Wednesday.

A slow progression northward after Wednesday; looks to bring wet weather back to the north of the area by Thursday. By Friday a deep tropical air mass will begin to invade from the gulf. This will bring with it a daily rhythm of showers/t-storms through the weekend and well into next week. The set up looks to be our normal diurnal driven thunderstorm activity in which any of these could be strong with heavy rainfall on any given day.

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.
