Rhode Island Weather, May 18, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Low dewpoints with high pressure will make for a very pleasant day of mid May weather. Really very nice and boring. Morning lows in the low 50’s rising to the low 70’s in the afternoon under mostly clear skies with the exception of the late afternoon and evening scattered cloud cover. Winds will be generally light of the northwest, gusting only as high as 25 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.
