9/4 – Rob Knight’s “Labor Day Weekend” Forecast


Strong subsidence combined with low-level moisture has kept us rain free. A broad disturbance is has beginning to dip southward across the Great Lakes and will expand into the Appalachian Mountains this weekend. This will erode the western edge of the Bermuda high-pressure, opening up an area of weakness across the south central US between it and the high-pressure over the Desert Southwest. That means, back to more typical summer-time pattern with scattered to numerous afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Today will be a transition day with storms mainly west of I-55 as the Bermuda Ridge slowly retreats east.

Moving into the middle of next week, Models still suggests a much more potent trough will swing through and bring a strong cold front through south Mississippi.

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.
