09/04 Ryan’s “Labor Day Weekend” Friday Forecast


The weather has been nice all week, but now a little rain is moving in for Labor Day Weekend. Doesn’t appear to be anything significant, but we will see two fronts over the next week. The first arrives overnight tomorrow, bringing some slightly cooler and drier air. Rain chances for Saturday and Sunday remain near 20%, but increase by Labor Day.

Even then it’ll only be up to about 40%, so slightly more rainy than an average summer day.

Rain chances linger near average from Monday to Thursday, but increase around that time as another front closes in. This one will be a little stronger, and will bring much drier air while not cooling things too much. Expect highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows falling into the low 70s and upper 60s by the end of next week.

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.
