07/01 Ryan’s “July 1” Wednesday Evening Forecast


The first of July is here and it certainly feels appropriately hot and humid. We did see a few showers this afternoon which cooled things down nicely, but they were late in the day and didn’t last long. The cloud cover will linger for a few hours, but overall expect it to clear up a bit heading into the night. Tonight’s low will bottom out near 79 with partly cloudy skies and light southerly winds.

Tomorrow continues our very familiar pattern, as basically a carbon copy of today.

Expect a hot and miserably humid afternoon with a high near 93 and spotty afternoon t-storms. Severe weather isn’t impossible, but isn’t likely for tomorrow. Severe chances increase for Friday due to supporting upper level features, but remain “marginal,” the lowest level. Once we get through the weekend rain chances will fall, but only back to “normal” for a summer afternoon. Basically, don’t expect any relief from the heat or the humidity for another week.

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.
