03/14 Ryan’s “Pi Day” Thursday Evening Forecast


Happy Pi Day everyone! It’s a day for scientists and mathematicians to enjoy the mathematical constant 3.14 (etc.) while others just eat pie. However you celebrate it in South MS, the weather wasn’t very good. It’s still cloudy and exceptionally humid, but rain hasn’t been an issue yet. That’s changing over the next few hours.

By 9 PM moderate-to-heavy showers will move in as the front does, and while thunderstorms are expected severe weather is not.

This front will pass through, but the showers and cloudy days are not over yet. There seems to be some upper level instability and moisture lingering along the coastline, almost as if another, elevated front is trying to develop but never quite does. This will keep spotty showers and cloudy skies in place through Saturday morning, but we’ll see gradual clearing after that. By St. Patrick’s Day expect mostly sunny skies and mild afternoons with even more clearing and cooling before the weekend.

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.
