09/18 Ryan’s “Grey Weekend” Friday Evening Forecast


It’s been an active week in weather so far, and that doesn’t change this weekend as grey, wet conditions linger. Not expecting any significant weather, we’re just seeing the top of what is now Tropical Storm Beta blowing our direction.

This means we’ll see cloudy to overcast skies each day, with at least a scattered (30%) chance of showers as long as Beta remains in the Gulf.

Unfortunately, that seems it’ll take a full week to move away. Tonight remains cloudy with a slight chance of showers, and will be slightly cooler near 70. Tomorrow remains cloudy and cooler with a high near 80, and a slightly higher rain chance near 40%. The temperature trends downward over the next week, meaning we’ll see some nice afternoons in the 70s, just won’t see much sun. We’ll continue to monitor the development of Beta, which could arrive by next Friday.

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.
