Rhode Island Weather, May 10, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Low pressure hangs around off of the New England coast, so essentially a carbon copy of yesterday, partly cloudy and still windy. Morning low in the mid 40’s will warm to the low 60’s in the afternoon with northeasterly winds gusting to 35 mph.


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.
