11/13 Ryan’s “Cold & Wet” Tuesday Evening Forecast


There’s no doubt about it, it’s cold & wet in South MS. The temperature has already fallen into the low 40s, and will only warm a few degrees in the afternoon sun tomorrow. That means the frigid night-time temperatures we’ve been expecting will finally begin to move in.

A Freeze Watch has already been issued for all six coastal counties, but the temperature won’t fall below 40 until tomorrow night.

Expect the evening low to remain in the 30s until at least Friday night, so while a hard freeze isn’t expected on the waterfront, the inland areas will be flirting with that range. All of next week will be drier and sunnier than this one has been. Afternoon highs will bottom out at around 47 degrees tomorrow, but will slowly inch upwards almost to 70 by the middle of next 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.
