9/30 – Rob’s “CHILLY Morning” Wednesday Forecast


BEAUTIFUL Autumn conditions in the area will continue through the extended forecast period.  A reinforcing surge of dry cool air will move through the area Thu night into Friday keeping these conditions through the weekend. This is when the next tropical disturbance is expected to initialize over the NW Caribbean. As this feature moves closer to the Yucatan, a deep moisture feed will get transported northward ahead of yet another cold front Sunday.

The strong stacked ridge bridges the southern end of the front causing a depletion of whatever rain manages to develop to the NW of the area. Basically, our area should continue to enjoy dry weather even into the new week. The ridging that develops behind the weekend front looks to settle over the deep south which should keep any tropical activity moving west or back into the Atlantic. Models at the moment are settling on a continued westward track of the first system over the Yucatan and southern gulf.

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.
