01/02 Ryan’s “Active Weather” Thursday Forecast


The first active weather of the new is taking its time moving in. The front has slowed considerably, and it looks like we’re still hours away from any significant rain. We remain under a “marginal” risk for severe weather, but chances are dwindling through the night.

Expect a low near 60 degrees with a 40% of showers after midnight, and a high of 64 with a 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms for tomorrow.

South MS rainfall estimates don’t appear to be concerning, but areas to the north are already having issues. Once the front begins moving everything will clear out pretty quickly. Expect the rain to end by tomorrow evening with skies clearing rapidly early Saturday morning. That means the rain may be taking a while to get here, but we’re still on track for a beautiful and sunny weekend.

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.
