04/22 Ryan’s “Windy” Wednesday Evening Forecast


Quite windy and humid today, and not much will change as we head through the night and into Thursday. Expect a considerably warmer night that last night as the low climbs into the low 70s. Showers will come and go from the evening until after midnight, when they’ll begin to increase considerably. Rain chances for tomorrow are around 70% as it will rain most of the day with strong thunderstorms.

Severe threat has held steady at “enhanced” for the eastern half of South MS, and “slight” for the western.

This means heavy rain, frequent lightning, strong winds, moderate hail, and tornadoes are all possible, if not likely. Be sure to have multiple ways to receive warnings, such as our free Weather Authority app if you don’t already have it. After the front passes we’ll see clearing skies into Friday morning. Overall the weather will remain drier and sunny well into next week, but there will be one exception early Sunday morning as a low passes nearby.

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.
