05/21 Ryan’s “Hotter” Tuesday Night Forecast

0
81

It’s even hotter and more sunny today than it was yesterday, and that’s a trend we won’t see end this week. It’s only going to get hotter as we approach the meteorological start of summer, but are still weeks away from the official start.

WE’RE ALREADY IN THE MID-TO-HIGH 80S ACROSS SOUTH MS, BUT I’M EXPECTING WE’LL SEE LOW 90S WITH HEAT INDICES IN THE 100 DEGREE RANGE BY THE WEEKEND.

That’s not in “dangerous” territory just yet, but it won’t be long before we see those days moving in as well. This week will basically be more of the same with just those few changes in temperature and humidity. Expect it to get progressively hotter from now into the weekend, when it appears we’ll cool off a few degrees heading into next week. We will very likely approach record high temperatures before that cool down occurs. Basically, expect sunny, hot days with warm, humid nights for the foreseeable future.

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.
