7/3 – Rob’s “Independence Day” Weekend Forecast

0
79

An upper-level disturbance along the mid-Atlantic sea board will settle just a bit further south. This will kick and area of high-pressure along the E’tern Gulf of Mexico towards the central Gulf. A cold front will settle along the mid-section of the Gulf Coast states through the weekend and will be a focal point for activity to flare up.

Currently this front looks to stall pretty much right over the I-10 to the coastal Mississippi line. The front along with impulses moving in from the north will keep us in a persistent wet pattern through around Tuesday. While individual storms should not dump too much rain at once, due to the persistence heavy rain, flooding may become an issue in the long run for areas that get repeated rounds of storms.

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.
