04/27 Ryan’s “Fire Weather” Monday Evening Forecast


The weather has been beautiful since the end of last week, but dry, breezy conditions are only helping the fire. Not much will change in that regard tonight, so expect a clear and drier low near 58 and calm winds. Tomorrow will warm slightly from today, high now up to 79 degrees with sunny skies.

Winds remain moderate and from the south, but will increase significantly into the overnight hours as a front moves in.

This front will carry with it a “marginal” risk of severe weather as it passes through, which is currently around an hour after sunrise. Unfortunately for the fire situation in Harrison County, this rain event won’t last long. It does look like whatever rain we get will be quite heavy though, so hopefully that will be enough to help out. Regardless, afterwards we’ll see a near perfect lead in to the weekend. Expect sunny days with highs in the mid 70s and lows near 60. It will steadily warm into next week, but still with plenty of sunshine.

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.
