10/27 Ryan’s “Stormy” Friday Night Forecast


After a week of cloudless skies, clouds moved in earlier and we’re in for a stormy night. Those clouds will continue to increase as a cold front pushes further into the Southeast, bringing showers and thunderstorms through the area as we head through the overnight hours. Yesterday’s forecast had a small chance for severe weather, but that was lowered today with the most recent updates. Front is just about to begin moving through the South Mississippi area, and while I expect to see pockets of heavier rain and thunderstorms, almost all of the severe parameters indicate a low chance of severe weather. These showers and storms will linger into the early morning hours, but should be completely out of the area by 10 AM Saturday. Expect cold air advection and breezy conditions throughout the afternoon, leading to one of the coldest nights we’ve seen yet this season. The clear, dry, and sunny weather lasts into the weekend, before the above average temperatures and humidity return.

Tropical depression 18 will form within the next few hours, but still isn’t expected to enter the Gulf, and will only be bringing heavy rains and gusting winds to Cuba, S. Florida, and the NW Bahamas.

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.
