08/10 Ryan’s “More Muggy” Monday Night Forecast


Last week was as dry as a bone, but it’s much more muggy now and afternoon showers are returning. Won’t see any of those tonight though with our mostly clear skies and a low near 76 degrees. Tomorrow will be another hot and humid one, and the rain chances will rise as high as they’ve been in over a week. Expect a high near 94 degrees with mostly sunny skies and a 40% chance of showers after noon.


Also, due to the rising humidity, the heat indices will begin creeping towards heat advisory levels. Expecting them to stay just south of there, more in the 100-110 degree range, but an advisory early on this week wouldn’t be surprising. It will get cooler as the week goes on, but that muggy air isn’t going anywhere. Expect rain chances to peak near Thursday, the same time highs fall into the low 90s.

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.
