05/10 Ryan’s “Cloudy w/ Full Moon” Wednesday Forecast


The light cloud cover that’s moved in won’t be able to block out all of the full moon tonight, but it will continue to thicken through tomorrow ahead of Friday afternoon’s cold front. Southerly winds have increased low level moisture throughout the day leading to a considerably warmer and more humid evening. Temperature will remain in the upper 60s on the coastline with inland areas slightly cooler, and patchy fog is expected to develop again overnight.

Tomorrow afternoon will remain at least partly sunny, though cloud cover will continue to increase throughout the day. I’m expecting the temperature to remain in the low 80s during the day, with the night increasing to around 70 as more moisture pools in the area. This will continue until the early afternoon on Friday, when our next frontal system will bring showers to the Gulf Coast. Current trends show the storm to be on the weaker side this far South, and at most a “marginal” threat of severe weather is expected. Regardless, this system will pass through fairly quickly and we’ll see clearing skies and drier air after. Mother’s Day weekend is looking quite sunny, clear, and warm at the moment.

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.
