Rhode Island Weather, June 1, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Cloudy and cool through the day with light rain from mid afternoon onward into the night as moisture overruns the frontal system twisting through the northeast US. Light winds start out from the northeast and then swing to southeasterly to feed the front with Atlantic moisture and cool air. Morning and evening lows in the upper 50’s with afternoon highs only reaching the mid 60’s.


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 where the McCabe’s, Donnelly’s, Walker’s and Callan’s have been since after the Civil War.
