04/10 Ryan’s “Hotter” Wednesday Forecast


It was a little hotter today than even I expected as temperatures rose into the mid 80s. The sunshine and warmer weather isn’t going anywhere in the short term, but slightly cooler weather moves in as cloud cover thickens into the weekend.

Expect more cloudless skies tomorrow, but cloud cover thickens considerably Friday afternoon.

This is due to a frontal system slowly creeping in from the Plains, but it looks like it’ll eject to the northeast before moving through. It is trailing another developing system out of Southern TX and the Western Gulf, which will bring more warm moist air into the area Saturday morning and eventually heavy showers/thunderstorms Saturday evening. The cloud cover and rain lingers until Sunday morning when the last front of the front finally moves through, ushering in some slightly cooler and drier air. That means while we start next week much sunnier, the clouds don’t stay away long and we’ll see rain chances return as early as Wednesday.

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.
