11/29 Ryan’s “Dense Fog” Wednesday Night Forecast


We still have a few degrees to cool, but foggy conditions are already beginning to pop up around South MS and will become more dense through the night. We’ve seen gradually warming temperatures and increasing humidity all week long as expected, which means tonight will be the warmest and foggiest we’ve seen, but also that we’ll begin a slight cooling trend into the weekend. As of now, Dense Fod Advisories have been issued for Harrison, Hancock, Jackson, and Pearl River Counties until 9 AM tomorrow. There isn’t much cold air advection with this approaching system, so temperatures will only cool by about 5 degrees at coastal locations and a little more inland. Weather behind the front will be clear and mild, and these conditions will last through the weekend and into the next work week before increasing moisture will lead to more clouds and higher rain chances. It’s still a tad too early to be sure, but it seems a much stronger front could bring storms and Arctic air very soon. Watch for updates in the days to come.

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.
