06/26 Ryan’s “Drier” Friday Evening Forecast

0
177

It was much drier out there today as the rain gave us a break, but hot and humid weather remains. Tonight will be another warm and humid one with a low near 76, cloudy skies, and high humidity. Tomorrow afternoon will be one of the nicer days this week, with partly sunny skies (slight clearing), and only a 20% chance of afternoon showers.

The limited activity is largely due to the Saharan dust in the sky above.

This slightly drier trend continues through tomorrow and into the beginning of the week, but it does start to increase slightly by Monday. By Wednesday the chances rise to 40%, which is more in line with what we saw all week long up to this point. By next weekend rain chances are significant again (in excess of 60%), with little to no change in the humidity.

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.
