08/06 Ryan’s “Still Dry” Thursday Evening Forecast


South MS has been on a bit of a hot streak over the last several days, and it’s still dry with no afternoon showers. This will continue for at least one more day as we finish off the week. That means don’t expect any major changes tonight, low remains near 73 degrees with clear skies and light, northerly winds. Tomorrow will be another hot one, and still dry, though the humidity will finally begin to moderate. Expect a high near 95 degrees with mostly sunny skies and light southerly winds.

While there is an off-chance of seeing a stray shower tomorrow and about a 20% chance for Saturday, I don’t expect to get back to “normal” amounts of afternoon showers until the start of next week.

It appears Monday and Tuesday will be the rainiest as chances climb to 40%. These more cloudy, active afternoons will lead to cooler highs, but they’ll only fall closer to average…near 90 degrees.

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.
