06/09 Ryan’s “Mild” Friday Night Forecast


It’ll be another mild evening, but the temperature is beginning to rise along with the humidity. So expect more of both as we head into tomorrow afternoon, which will warm to 87 on the waterfront with light southerly winds. We’ll see a few more clouds than we did today, but it will remain at least mostly sunny and pleasant.

By Sunday afternoon we’ll begin seeing significant changes. From Saturday night to Sunday afternoon expect the “precipitatable water” overhead to nearly double, leading to increased chances of rain and cloud cover. A warm front is moving in from the Central Gulf and while is isn’t very strong or expected to last long, it will provide enough instability during daytime heating hours to create a few showers and storms. This trend will continue through Monday, but will begin to taper off in terms of rain and cloud cover through the rest of the week. Next weekend is looking much clearer and warmer than we began this one.

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.
