Ryan’s “Damp Monday” Forecast


It’s been a pretty damp Monday so far today. Thunderstorms started as early as last night and continued into early this morning. There were still some sprinkles hanging around as late as 10:30 AM, but the skies cleared and the Sun returned for much of the afternoon. We’re already seeing (as of 6:15 PM) showers and thunderstorms moving in from the North, and while I expect most of the storms to dissipate, we will likely still have a few showers through the rest of the night. Otherwise, it will remain hot and humid, with a low near 77 and light winds from the SW. These winds carry over into tomorrow, where we will also see much more in the way of rain and t-storms. Expect a 60% chances of rain in the afternoon with a high near 88. The frontal system which is bringing our cloudy skies is expected to stall as it moves over the coastline, so expect the clouds to stick around for a few days but it looks like things begin clearing up as we head into the weekend.

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.
