09/11 Ryan’s “Damp” Wednesday Evening Forecast


Today’s rain chances were in the single digits, but a few showers did manage to make things a little more damp in the afternoon. We didn’t see many of them, but they did cool the afternoon down a bit. Don’t expect many more for the rest of the week though. Sunshine and mostly clear skies will carry us through the rest of the week but a particularly rainy weekend lies ahead.

A tropical wave is moving in which currently has a 70% of tropical development over the next 3-5 days.

It’s likely a tropical depression forms over the weekend, and even a tropical storm isn’t out of the question. Whatever the case, it certainly isn’t going to be another Dorian since it won’t have long over open water to develop. Expect the showers to move in by Saturday night and we’ll see the stormy conditions linger into the beginning of next week. Unless something drastic changes, wind speeds won’t reach severe levels, but flash flooding will be something to watch for as the rain piles up.

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.
