12/02 Ryan’s “Winter-Like” Monday Evening Forecast


It’s been a while since we last saw it, but get ready for another round of winter-like weather! Temperatures will fall out of the 50s and into the 40s through the evening, but freezing temperatures arrive overnight. I expect lows to fall to right at, or slightly above freezing on the coastline, but you’ll find mid-to-upper 20s a little further inland.

Due to these conditions, don’t forget to protect the “3 P’s,” your pets, plants, and pipes.

Bring in those outdoor pets if possible, or at least make sure they have enough bedding and food if that isn’t possible. Also be sure to cover or bring in sensitive plants, and wrap any outdoor, exposed pipes. Thankfully it won’t stay that cold for very long. Tomorrow will still be nice and cool in the upper 50s, but we’ll be closing in on 70 degrees again by mid-week. Not much else changes until Friday, when our first significant cloud cover and rain chances return.

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.
