10/26 Ryan’s “Wild Week” Monday Night Forecast


Great start to the week so far, but sadly things get wild quickly as a tropical system approaches. Hurricane Zeta formed earlier today, and seems to have its sights set on South MS. Current landfall timing has it moving in around midnight Wednesday, but that is still subject to change. We won’t see any major related changes tonight, but expect to see clouds slowly increasing through the night. It’ll remain on the warm side as well with a low near 69.


Expect a high near 81 with a 50% chance of showers on the back end of the day. Zeta’s outer bands will continue to move in throughout Wednesday with landfall expected in SE Louisiana between 8-10 PM. Thankfully, drier air should keep Zeta from strengthening too much in the days ahead. That means Zeta should be a low end Hurricane or high end Tropical Storm, but we’ll continue to watch. Stay tuned for updates.

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.
