04/30 Ryan’s “Practically Perfect” Thursday Evening Forecast


Today’s weather was practically perfect in every way, and very little is changing for the next several days. Tonight’s skies remain as clear as today’s, allowing it tocool down to 54 degrees by sunrise. Tomorrow’s high climbs slightly into the low 80s, but remains dry with “comfy” dewpoints in the upper 40s/low 50s. From here, expect to see the temperature and humidity gradually rising to near uncomfortable levels. The afternoon high will be in the mid 80s by the start of next week, and into the upper 80s by the middle.

The humidity will remain nice and dry until Sunday when it will climb into the humid range, climbing further into “muggy” territory by Tuesday.

Fortunately, a cold front moves through before it gets out of hand. This front doesn’t seem to have much moisture associated with it, so don’t expect much (any at the moment) rain and only a slight pop of cloud cover. By the end of next week, skies will clear again and the temperature will fall…only back into the low 80s though thankfully the humidity falls again too.

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.
