8/10 – Rob Knight’s Monday Morning/Workweek Forecast


High-pressure building to the east around central Florida will shape the forecast through much of the week ahead. The humid flow will bring high heat indices to the area along with daily showers and t-storms. Over land, most convection will occur during the afternoon hours each day, with drier overnight hours. Models continue bounce back and forth regarding moisture levels available for convection. If there is a preferred day for higher rain chances at this point, it would probably be Thursday (at around 70 percent), as that’s when moisture levels are expected to be the highest. Temperatures should trend towards the upper end of guidance for highs as long as thunderstorm development continues to be a mainly afternoon event.

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.
