Ryan’s “Summer Storm” Thursday Forecast


Another day, another afternoon of summer storm activity. Skies were pretty clear most of the day, but just like the last few evenings we’re seeing the development of some isolated, slow moving thunderstorms. Not much is expected out of these storms though, some gusty winds and small hail are possible in the most extreme circumstances but radar has already shown some marked dissipation in just the few hours they’ve been around. Tonight will be another warm and humid night, with a low near 75, but luckily it looks like the rain chances are on the downswing. Tomorrow is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 92, and only a 20% chance of afternoon storms. The low rain chances carry over through the weekend and into next week with Sunday and Monday (Independence Day) having the highest percentages at just about 30%. Things get much drier and hotter though as we head into the rest of the week, expect clearing skies and much more sunshine.

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.
