01/15 Ryan’s “Much Colder” Monday Night Forecast


Today may have been within a hair of 60 degrees, but a nearby Arctic front is bringing much colder and drier air as well as the small chance of wintry weather. It’ll cool into the upper 30s on the waterfront tonight with light winds and moderate humidity, but the effects of the front will be felt as early as tomorrow morning but will increase drastically around noon. Over the next 6-8 hours the front will slowly move through the area, and this is when we see the highest chances of rain, wintry mix, and even a few snow flurries. The Northern coastal counties (George, Stone, Pearl River) are under a winter weather advisory and will definitely see some form frozen precipitation, but the Southern coastal counties (Harrison, Hancock, Jackson) will be right on the rain/snow line and have a much lower chance. Regardless, travel during this time will be unsafe as roads will be wet and cold only becoming more dangerous through the overnight hours while the temperature plummets into the mid-to-upper 20s. By 10 PM Wednesday all the active weather will have moved East, and we’ll be left with considerably drier air than we saw today, cold/sunny days, and at least two brutally cold nights (Tuesday/Wednesday) under a Hard Freeze Warning. The Arctic front’s effects won’t last though, and we’ll be cloudy and humid again by the weekend with temperatures barely South of 70.

Update: Schools in George County have decided to release classes early, at 11:30 AM, due to the likely winter weather.

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.
