Rhode Island weather, April 28, 2023 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure slides to our east as a low pressure system slowly advances our way from the southwest. It will take its time getting here, and won’t be a problem until Saturday. In the meantime, cloud cover will build through the day on a southeasterly breeze with misty morning lows in the low 40’s and afternoon highs in the low 60’s.

A “B-” day!

John Donnelly was born in Hialeah, Florida and moved back to Rhode Island and settled in Johnston, where he grew up until graduating from Lyndon State College in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology. As a child John always wanted to know how air moved, and he ran towards, not away from, thunder and lighting and various other ominous weather phenomena. He returned in 2001 to the old family neighborhood of Elmhurst.
