05/02 Ryan’s “More Sunny” Thursday Forecast


It may have been more sunny today, but we aren’t done with clouds or fog just yet. Tonight will be just as humid as the last few have been, and light winds will allow for more fog. Clouds were clear for most of the day, but will begin to increase overnight.

This will finish off the week humid and grey, but we’ll still be dry until Saturday.

That’s when our next “weather maker” will move in. Right now it seems to be a slow-moving and disorganized cold front. It doesn’t really have the metrics associated with it to be concerned with severe weather, but thunderstorms will be possible. Current timing has it moving through between lunchtime and 6 PM, but there is little confidence in that right now. It’s something we’ll continue to update you on, especially with all the weekend activities going on. Either way, the weather begins to clear into next week but temperatures remain on the warmer and more humid side.

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.
