Ryan’s “Lundi Gras” Monday Night Forecast


Happy Lundi Gras South Mississippi, and it’s looking like Mardi Gras won’t be as wet as we thought. Last weekend’s rain has moved to the East, but the cloud cover and humidity will remain for a few more days. As the cold front begins to stretch out, it will become a warm front and begin pushing Northward towards the Gulf Coast, but right as it closes in it will become more stationary. This means while we enjoyed some slightly drier and cooler weather today, even more moisture and warmer conditions will move in by tomorrow. So while today was windy and a little chilly, tomorrow will warm back into the upper 60s/low 70s in South MS. Despite this influx of temperature and moisture, I don’t expect many showers, though an isolated few are certainly possible. Have an umbrella on hand for any Mardi Gras parades, but you won’t need it much and we’ll see the sun again by the middle of the 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.
