10/19 – Rob Knight’s Monday Mid-Morning Forecast


With high-pressure dominating the region, a partly to mostly sunny day is ahead. Morning dense fog will continue to be a factor though the latter part of the workweek before the pattern changes. The surface high pressure ridge, extending across the eastern seaboard and northern Gulf coast states, will generally remain in place the next few days, and has trended towards keeping the forecast area dry in most locations. This pattern will not allow cold fronts anywhere near the area.

The chance of mostly afternoon showers and thunderstorms should return Thursday into Friday as deeper layer east to southeast flow continues around the large ridge that will be east of the central Gulf coast region, and there may be a fairly well defined and slow moving easterly wave feature over the north central Gulf waters. Drier conditions should return over the weekend. Warm temperatures will continue through the period with lows in the mid-60s to low 70s and highs in the low to mid-80s.

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.
