05/17 Ryan’s “Sunny” Friday Forecast


More sunny weather in South MS today, but that long trend is finally coming to an end this weekend. A slow-moving front is heading in and will be here by lunchtime on Sunday. In the meantime, we’ll see a surge in low-level moisture and cloud cover through Saturday.

This will likely lead to a few daytime heating/sea breeze induced showers Saturday afternoon, but the organized rain will wait for Sunday.

Current timing has it coming in after lunch and petering out Monday morning. Cloud cover and showers will linger some into the morning, but will clear rapidly into the evening. Temperatures start to rise as upper level ridging catches up with surface high pressure, so expect to see the first 90s of the year by the end of next week.

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.
