07/10 Ryan’s “Miserable” Friday Evening Forecast


Even more miserable weather is on the way as the temperature continues to climb and the high humidity lingers. Tonight in particular will be on the muggy side, with a low near 79 and a dewpoint in the mid 70s. Tomorrow is when things really start to get out of hand though. Expect a high near 95 degrees with increased humidity, which means heat indices will rise to the 105-110 degree range. This is the threshold for Heat Advisories, so it’s likely we’ll see a few over the weekend. That means even short-term exposure could be dangerous, so if you’re going to enjoy the outdoors remember to try and stay cool.

Drink plenty of water, take lots of breaks, and seek shade whenever possible.

If you start feeling dizzy, abnormally tired, or stop sweating, go indoors (or at least into some AC) as soon as possible. This miserable trend lasts into the beginning of next week, but more frequent afternoon showers return by then to keep things a little cooler.

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.
