09/17 Ryan’s “Little Sun” Thursday Evening Forecast


Skies opened up a little and let in a little sun, but we’ll be seeing more clouds in the days ahead. Only expecting a few of those tonight, so partly cloudy with a low near 72 and light northerly winds. There is a chance a shower could drift across the area, and while it’s quite low it does increase over the weekend. Tomorrow afternoon cools from today, high down to 82 with mostly cloudy skies and that sight chance of an isolated shower.

Rain chances max on Saturday, around 40% as a weak front moves in.

This front will make things a little cooler and drier, but not dramatically so. All this cloud cover is drifting our direction from a tropical disturbance in the Western Gulf, which has just now been classified as Tropical Depression 22. This is officially forecast to move towards TX by Tuesday, but could potentially drift into the Gulf by the end of the week so stay tuned.

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.
