04/25 Ryan’s “Clear, but Warmer” Tuesday Night Forecast


Tonight’s skies remain clear, but warmer & more humid air began moving in earlier today and will continue through the week. Expect to find slightly warmer and more humid conditions with each new day, and a cold front is primed to bring rain through the area as early as tomorrow (Wednesday) night into Thursday morning. South MS is under a “marginal,” level 1 of 5, severe threat for these hours, but it doesn’t look likely for our area with this system. Almost immediately after the front moves through, it’s upper level support will lift the entire system rapidly Northeast which will drag a developing warm front across the area, negating any cooling/drying.

Warm moist air continues to pour into the area from Thursday afternoon through Sunday, bringing evening lows as high as the mid-70s to the Gulf Coast. Instability will be high enough by Saturday afternoon that some afternoon showers and storms can pop up during the hottest parts of the day, but the majority of our active weather won’t move in until Sunday afternoon. It’s too early for significant confidence in the strength of this weather system, but so far it’s looking worrisome. Stay tuned for updates.

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.
