06/25 Ryan’s “Less Wet” Thursday Evening Forecast


There was less wet weather today despite a few evening showers, but even drier days are coming! Make no mistake, there will still be a chance of afternoon showers and t-storms, but it’s much lower than recent days. Expect more cloudy skies this evening with very humid air, and a low near 76. Tomorrow afternoon is right in line with the rest of the week, high in the upper 80s with mostly cloudy skies and high humidity.

Rain chances have been lingering in the 60-80% range through the middle of the week, but will now fall considerably.

This is partially due to the arrival of the Saharan air that’s been in the headlines for the past week. This desert air will limit tropical development in the Atlantic, but will also lower the air quality, meaning people with breathing issues may experience discomfort. Otherwise, expect more of the same hot and miserably humid weather.

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.
