07/06 Ryan’s “Muggy” Monday Night Forecast


Recent weather has been heavily on the wet, muggy side, but much drier days are ahead…just not much less humid. Today saw a good an inch or so on average across the coast, but now things are quieting down. Still, expect an isolated shower or two to linger through the night, with a low near 76 and cloudy skies.

I’m bringing down rain chances to 40% tomorrow (down from 80%), but it will still be hot and humid with a high near 88.

That means heat indices in the mid 90s-low 100s are likely. The next few days will continue the rainy trend, but by Thursday those chances will fall to 20% or below. Less rain also generally means more sun, and higher temperatures. Expect highs to climb into the mid 90s by the weekend with even higher humidity! It’ll be beautiful, but we’re rapidly approaching periods of dangerous heat.

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.
