10/28 – Rob Knight’s Wednesday Mid-Morning Zeta Update…


Without much surprise, the majority of time spent on the forecast was on the difficult 24 hours that lie ahead for the area. Zeta has re-strengthened into a hurricane in the central Gulf of Mexico this morning and satellite continues to show an improved overall look to the system. As was the concern yesterday morning at this time, the intensity forecast has overachieved and the previous forecast advisory from the National Hurricane Center now shows Zeta becoming a Category 2 hurricane at landfall.

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.
