03/13 Ryan’s “Windy” Wednesday Evening Forecast


It’s been a windy afternoon so far and it only increases through the night. Skies are grey and heavy and visibility already being affected by the high humidity, but the the rain and thunderstorms are still hours away. All of these conditions will continue into tomorrow as we await a cold front currently moving through the Plains.

This system has already brought severe weather to other parts of the country, and small sections of the northern South MS counties remain under a “marginal” risk for severe weather tomorrow.

Regardless of whether or not we see any, still expect heavy rain, thunderstorms, and gusting winds as the front moves through tomorrow evening. The tail-end of this boundary lingers in the Northern Gulf after it passes, so cloud cover and a moderate chance of showers will remain through Friday and into the first part of Saturday before any significant sunshine returns. Don’t worry though, by St. Patrick’s Day the sun returns and will remain through the middle of the week when we usher in the official start of Spring!

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.
