08/11 Ryan’s “Hazy Heat” Tuesday Evening Forecast


Hot and hazy again this afternoon despite a few cooling showers popping up late in the afternoon. Not much is going to change any given afternoon, so remember to protect yourself from over-exposure. Tonight won’t cool as much as recent nights have, falling to near 77 under partly cloudy skies.

Light to calm winds will last into the morning, but shift southerly in the afternoon.

Expect another hot, hazy, and humid afternoon ahead with a high near 94 degrees. This means our heat indices will linger in the 100-107 degree range, just south of heat advisory levels. Please remember to hydrate and seek shade often if you must spend a lot of time outside during peak heating.

Rain chances climb to 40%, and will continue to rise through the middle and into the end of this week.

We’ll see slightly cooler highs, but overall little will change until the start of next week. That’s when highs pass beyond the mid 90s, but a cold front is poised to quickly bring relief.

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.
