07/27 Ryan’s “Cooler & Damp” Monday Night Forecast


We’re beginning this week exactly the way we finished the last, wet & grey with quiet, damp evenings. This rainy trend continues for a few more days, so don’t expect much change tonight. Skies remain cloudy and there’s a small chance of more showers around sunrise. It will remain on the cooler side as well, low near 73. Tomorrow’s high will be cooler as well, still in the low 80s thanks to the thick cloud cover and rain-cooled air. Skies will remain overcast and we’ll see frequent showers, rain chances around 70%.


By Thursday we’ll finally see some significantly drier weather as the sun returns. Expect mostly sunny skies through the weekend, with rain chances falling into the single digits to 20% range. This drier trend lasts until the beginning of next week before getting back to “normal” by Monday. That means you can expect highs to return to the low 90s and (afternoon) rain chances to linger near 30%.

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.
