12/05 Ryan’s “Colder Weather” Tuesday Night Forecast


As the rain begins we’ll start seeing some cooler conditions immediately, but much colder weather is on the way and we may see a few moments of some wintry weather before the weekend. The cold front itself will pass through tonight by 10 PM, but thanks to some slow moving upper level features this rain will linger for nearly the rest of the work week. Instability will be low each day so thunderstorm activity will be isolated, but we’ll see scattered showers all day Wednesday, Thursday, and into the early morning hours of Friday. It’s this latter time frame that gets the most interesting as the 540 decameter line, also known as the rain/snow line, moves into South Mississippi before sunrise. If any showers linger long enough into the morning we could see sleet, freezing rain, or even a light snow flurry or two before the drier air moves in. As the weekend rolls around, evening lows will remain in the low-to-mid 30s while afternoons linger in the 50s with sunny skies. It will be cold enough for a light freeze, so be sure to take extra precautions to protect your outdoor plants, pets, and pipes.

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.
