01/07 Ryan’s “Active Weather” Sunday Forecast


The first active weather we’ve seen in quite some time has already started moving in, and will continue to do so for the next 24 hours or so. A low pressure system is moving in from the West, placing us in the “warm sector” and allowing for a dramatic increase in moisture and strong southerly winds. While mostly showers are expected, an isolated thunderstorm or two is not out of the question, though no severe weather is expected. Heavy rainfall is likely as this system moves through and parts of South Mississippi could see in excess of three inches or more between tonight and Monday night. This is why Flash Flood Watches have been issued for the Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, and Pearl River Counties; and if a heavy shower or storm lingers for long over an area we could see some localized flooding.

After the rain leaves we’ll warm rapidly to 70 by Thursday, but we’re not quite done with the freezing temperatures just yet…expect them to return by the beginning of next week.

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.
