01/20 Ryan’s “Cold & Dry” Monday Evening Forecast


Expect it to be downright frigid tonight as cold & dry air continues to arrive in South MS. Temperatures will fall into the upper 20s on the waterfront tonight, and even cooler inland. Freeze warnings have been issued for the coastal counties as well as Pearl River County due to these conditions.

The temperature will remain below freezing for at least 6 hours, but will feel colder for much longer thanks to a moderate northerly wind.

Remember to protect your “Three Ps” tonight as the temperature falls. Wrap any exposed pipes, drip indoor faucet, let those pets spend the night inside, and bring in/cover sensitive plants. The temperature will moderate slowly through the week, but the next few nights will be below freezing. It’ll be back into the 60s by Thursday/Friday as our next weather maker moves in, which will bring more dry air and sunny skies for the 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.
