8/3 – Rob Knight’s “Warm, Less Humid” Monday Forecast


Upper air analysis showed a disturbance axis from Hudson Bay to northwest Gulf of Mexico and west to southwest flow over Lower Mississippi Valley. In addition, Isaias is off the Florida east coast moving north. Surface analysis showed a frontal boundary from north Georgia to southwest Mississippi and a cold front from Lake Michigan to northeast Texas to west Texas. Initial moisture field shows moisture pooling along the cold front to the NW from central Alabama to Lake Pontchartrain to the northwest Gulf.

The trough axis and secondary boundary will push through late Monday. Dry air ahead of the front and main trough will push south diminish most rain chances today. We could still see a slight chance of rain on the Mississippi coast and around tidal lakes Monday afternoon. Dry air will stay in place over the forecast through the week. Northwest flow will bring in moisture and a chance of rain across the west half of the forecast area Wednesday through Friday.

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.
