6/17 – Rob’s “Hot & Pleasant” Morning Forecast


Lower humidity in the region will continue through Thursday before subtle changes begin to occur. Thursday through Saturday will basically be a continuation of the first half of the week…characterized by above normal daytime temps, below normal lows, and no rain (for the most part) as the humidity will begin rebounding. An isolated storm along sea breeze can’t be ruled out. The driver of this pattern starts with an upper low centered in the southeast CONUS. The low will remain there during most of this period which will maintain northerly flow. This keeps column moisture down. Model soundings show PW`s in the low 1″ range Thursday with a gradual increase thru the weekend. That upper low will finally open up and lift out as another trough drops out of Canada into the midsection of the country on Sunday. Expect summer-time popup convection to return with regularity Monday with rain chances well over 50% possibly each day next week. Temps will be similar with highs in the low 90s and lows in the lower 70s.

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.
