12/11 Ryan’s “Wintry” Wednesday Evening Forecast


We didn’t see any of that wintry mix further north last night, but it certainly feels more wintry today. The skies will clear some and the winds will die down allowing for more radiational cooling, so expect a chilly low near 40 for Gulfport. Inland areas will be even cooler, but will remain north of freezing in South MS.

Thursday will begin with relatively clear skies and a high near 58, but clouds and rain move in quickly.

A low pressure system will be passing just to the southeast of us late Thursday, and it will keep clouds and rain in the area through Friday. By Saturday morning the skies will begin to clear and we’ll enjoy a beautiful sunny weekend! Temperatures will linger in the mid to upper 60s as well, so it won’t be too hot or too cool. Temperatures rise into the 70s by Monday, but another front will have us back in the 50s by Tuesday.

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.
