01/07 Ryan’s “Cooler, Drier” Tuesday Evening Forecast


It isn’t much cooler yet, but the temperature will fall quickly tonight. This influx of cooler, drier air is thanks to this morning’s cold front, which only brought a little cloud cover.

There wasn’t much moisture for this front to work with, so rain wasn’t an issue and won’t be again until the weekend.

Tonight’s low will fall into the upper 30s due to clear skies and light winds, and tomorrow afternoon will be similar to today’s with sunny skies and mild temperatures.

By Thursday the temperature will begin to rise quickly as our next frontal system looms to the west.

Expect clouds to move in as early as Thursday night, but significant rainfall won’t arrive until Friday. It’s still too early for the official word from the Storm Prediction Center, but it looks as if we’ll be under at least a “slight” risk for severe weather. This threat will carry into Saturday, and will likely increase as well as the cold front closes in. Be sure to stay tuned to WXXV News 25 for the latest on this developing situation.

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.
