6/28 Ryan’s “Severe Potential” Thursday Evening Forecast


It’s been rather clear and sunny all day, but we have the potential for severe weather as we head into the evening.

A squall line which originated in North Alabama is pushing southward, and will be moving in by 9 PM tonight.

This system has produced 60+ mph winds, lightning, and heavy rains; but has little chance of tornadoes. After the storm passes, we’ll see clearing skies and humid conditions for the rest of the evening. The trend we’ve seen recently will continue and increase through the weekend. The hot and humid conditions remain in place, but we’ll begin seeing much more rain than we have been.

Rain chances spike for Saturday and Sunday at round 50%, and will slowly begin to taper off by the beginning of next week.

By Wednesday, the Fourth of July, I’m expecting it to be slightly drier and more sunny for your holiday festivities.

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.
