05/11 Ryan’s “Muggy” Thursday Night Forecast


It’s going to be warm and muggy tonight on the Gulf Coast, as our evening low will only drop to around 71. Winds will remain in the 10-15 mph range tonight (outside of protected areas) and will prevent any thick fog formation, despite the high relative humidity. The cold front won’t arrive until just after midnight on Friday, but showers can start as early as 7 AM, with the stronger storms moving in immediately after lunch. We remain under a “marginal” severe threat, but little severe weather is expected at this time.

After the front, expect plenty of clearing/drying but no cooling. Saturday’s high will rise back into the lower 80s quickly, and by the beginning of next week we’ll be heading into the mid-to-upper 80s. The humidity will be on the rise as well, and will bring evening lows in the 70s back as early as next Wednesday night.

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.
