02/07 Ryan’s “Still Rainy” Wednesday Evening Forecast


It’s still rainy out there South Mississippi, but we will get a short reprieve tomorrow before it all comes back for the weekend. I’m not expecting any thunderstorms from this point forward, but a few moderate-to-heavy bands of showers will slowly move through the area for the rest of the evening. The front itself is becoming stationary, but will continue to slowly drift to the South, stopping in the Northern Gulf. This means while conditions will improve greatly for Thursday morning and afternoon, this decaying boundary will become a warm front and move inland bringing overcast skies back by Thursday night/Friday morning. This frontal system will begin to break down by Friday night, and will be swept away by another frontal system moving down from the mountains. This front won’t pass until Sunday morning/afternoon, so expect rain in the area from Friday afternoon until then with yet another front primed to move in almost immediately after.

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.
