12/04 Ryan’s “Drier” Friday Night Forecast


Pretty wet last night as a stronger than expected line of thunderstorms moved through, but drier days lie ahead. Those conditions are moving in as early as tonight actually, so expect a chilly low near 39. Our cooling trend continues into tomorrow afternoon as well, high now down to 60 under sunny skies. With the exception of Sunday, this pattern holds for the rest of the week.

The high will linger near the seasonal average of 60 degrees during the day and just below the average of 45 for our overnight lows.

The issue with Sunday is a weak front is moving in from the north at the same time a broad low is passing to the south of us in the Gulf. The upper level pattern will blow the tops of these showers and storms overhead, possibly bringing a few light showers along for the ride. Once that weak front forces this moisture eastward, clear, sunny skies move in and linger until next weekend.

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.
