8/28 – Rob Knight’s “Rainy Friday Morning” Forecast


With Laura well to the NW, the tropical moisture continues to plume in from the Gulf of Mexico. The main concern will slow moving band of showers and thunderstorms that expanded through the area last night. The very strong tropical flow will continue to support this band of activity through tonight, so some areas could see a quick 1-2 inches or so or rainfall. This band will undulate slight east and west so while some areas in south Mississippi could see rain through the day, other areas could just have cloud coverage.

The moisture and instability will continue through the weekend into early next week before the pattern begins to change.

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.
