02/06 Ryan’s “Post-Frontal” Thursday Evening Forecast


We’ve been feeling its effects for a few days, but now we can begin enjoying some cooler, drier post-frontal weather. That changeover has begun, as clouds have already started clearing and will continue doing so through the night. That’ll leave us with mostly clear skies by sunrise, with a low in the mid 30s.

A decent wind from the W/NW will lower wind chills into upper 20s, and will keep Friday’s afternoon high in the mid 50s despite ample sunshine.

Temperatures moderate quickly though, so expect to be back into the mid 60s by Saturday. We’ll continue steadily warming into the middle of the week, and cloud cover will slowly increase as well as our next frontal system moves in. Expect it by Monday morning, but the cloud cover and rain will linger for most of next week.

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.
