Rhode Island Weekend Weather for March 25/26, 2023 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Saturday 3/25/23:

An occluded frontal system moves into the northeastern US with rain beginning in our area around noon and carrying past midnight. Rain will be light, with a bout of slightly more moderate intensity during the early evening hours. Temperatures may be low enough to support some mixed precipitation in the northwest corner of the state, afternoon highs in the low 40’s and lows in the mid 30’s with a steady east-southeasterly breeze gusting to 25 mph.

A “D” day!

Sunday 3/26/23:

The frontal system having pulled away to the east, we will see rapid improvement with clearing by midday and afternoon highs rising to the mid to upper 50’s from lows in the low 40’s. Winds will intensify, gusting to 30 mph out of the west.

A “D” 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.
