04/19 Ryan’s “Better” Good Friday Night Forecast


It may be Good Friday today, but the weather is much better than yesterday’s. The front that brought our stormy evening last night is now well off to East but we’re still seeing a few showers in the area due to some weak low pressure features. Even those won’t last much longer through the night as it moves further away, and we’ll see clear skies before sunup tomorrow.


Temperatures will begin tomorrow in the upper 60s and low 70s and will continue to climb into the upper 70s by the start of next week. Cloud cover stays away for quite some time, but that begins building back by the middle of next week and will even bring moderate rain chances. This is all ahead of a stalling frontal boundary, so rain chances aren’t in a hurry to leave.

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.
