Ryan’s Thursday Night Forecast


The storms we have been talking about for the last few days finally arrived this afternoon, but more showers and thunderstorms are forecast before the week is through. Tonight will remain cool and humid, but the cold front will push everything out of the way as we head into Friday afternoon. Tomorrow (Friday) will start cloudy but end with plenty of blue sky and sunshine. Clouds return quickly as we move into Saturday, with showers beginning to pop up as we head into the overnight hours and eventually Easter Sunday. A warm front from the South will bring showers and thunderstorms which will continue throughout the day as the frontal system the front is attached to will slide through the area later. Some light showers are expected to carry over into Monday, but much like tomorrow, Monday will end up sunny and pleasant. Don’t get too comfortable though, more showers will move in by mid-week.

Born in Tennessee, raised in Arkansas, and now a resident of Mississippi, Ryan Mahan is proud to be a Southerner and to belong to this community. A former student of Millsaps and a graduate of the University of South Alabama, he now has a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology with a focus in Broadcast. Ryan’s passion for weather began in 2005 after witnessing the destruction that Hurricane Katrina had on his family and home. With nothing but a point-and-shoot digital camera in hand, he walked miles up and down the Coast to document the tragedy and its effects on the area and people around him. Using social media, he posted the photos and the stories behind them. The reaction from his peers inspired him to pursue a career doing what had up until then been a hobby. He loves working for WXXV because he feels it is the best opportunity he has to connect with the locals to whom he delivers the weather. He truly enjoys sharing his knowledge with those curious to learn more, particularly young students who express an interest in science and weather. One way he shares his enthusiasm is by getting involved in the scholastic educational process; he has judged several science fairs, talent shows, and pageants at local coast schools. He can also be found visiting several elementary school classes, hopefully turning your children future meteorologists. Ryan is a self-proclaimed geeky nerd. He loves all things sci-fi, and can usually be found watching his favorite cartoons on Adult Swim or playing any one of his array of video game consoles. He says he’s lucky that his high-school teacher wife puts up with him. They have a small bevy of furry children, but he really enjoys spending time with his two nieces, Claire and Elly, the latter of whom has made a few appearances on the network alongside him delivering the weather.
