2/22 Ryan’s “Dense Fog” Friday Evening Forecast


Don’t expect any changes to those dense fog conditions tonight, but a cold front will bring sunny weather back by Sunday. Tonight will remain mild and humid with dense fog and scattered showers. These conditions carry over into the first half of tomorrow, but will begin to change as the front moves in through the evening. Winds will increase from the south, and the showers become more frequent as bears down on South Mississippi.

It won’t be until just before midnight that the leading edge of the strongest convection arrives.

This will be the window we’ll have the highest chance of seeing some potentially severe weather. It may be upgraded tomorrow, but right now this system only has a “marginal” risk for severe weather in South Mississippi.

A “marginal” risk means our biggest threats will be heavy rains, lightning, small to medium hail, and damaging straight line winds; but a weak, short-lived tornado cannot be ruled out.

Be sure to download our WXXV Weather Authority app and stay tuned to WXXV FOX/NBC during the storm for the latest updates. High pressure and cooler, drier air moves in behind this system and will bring our first completely sunny skies in weeks for the start of the week before clouds and scattered showers move back in.

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.
