by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A noticeably warm day with increasing cloud cover later in the day with light showers by evening. Lows around 50 and afternoon highs in the 60’s with a light southwesterly breeze sneakily drawing in the warm air in the warm sector ahead of the advancing cold front.

Buds will be busting!


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.
