04/17 Ryan’s “Return Flow” Tuesday Evening Forecast


Today’s weather was just as clear and sunny as yesterday’s, but return flow set up this afternoon and the humidity is on the rise. Tonight will be significantly warmer than the last few nights have been, mid-60s on the waterfront, with patchy fog expected in fog-prone areas. The temperature will continue rising into the low 80s by tomorrow afternoon, but a weak cold front moves in overnight bringing a slight cool down before things get out of hand. No rain is expected with that particular system, but a sprinkle or two isn’t out of the question. Temperatures will return to the mid and upper 70s across the Coast as the weekend arrives. Clouds will begin thin on Thursday, but will build slowly to “mostly cloudy” by Sunday. It’s then that we’ll see our next active weather system move in as a low pressure system currently developing over Northern California is pulled directly overhead overnight. Showers and an isolated thunderstorm or two will linger into Monday morning, but another trough will swing through keeping the clouds from completely clearing by Tuesday.

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.
