Rhode Island Weather, June 2, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Frontal system remains to our west with some morning showers ending around sunrise. Clouds stick around through most of the day, and then another batch of showers strikes during the evening and carries through the night as the system makes some eastward progress. Morning lows in the upper 50’s rising to the low 70’s in the afternoon with a light breeze shifting from easterly to southeasterly.


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.
