03/04 Ryan’s “Slight Risk” Wednesday Evening Forecast


A slight risk of severe weather remains in South MS, but little has happened so far. That’s because a stationary front is draped across the area, forcing the worst of the activity to the north. That front is creeping closer, so expect an uptick in activity over the next few hours.

It will eventually pull another low pressure system across South MS by sunrise, so the chance of showers and storms will linger until then at least.

That last frontal system will be gone by lunchtime, and clearing will begin quickly after. Expect to begin the day cloudy with a high near 65, but we’ll end it much more clear. Clearing skies will allow for more cooling, so expect to see a chilly, drier night with a low near 48. These cooler and drier conditions will stick around through the weekend, but give way to more clouds and rain by next Monday.

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.
