Rhode Island Weather, May 19, 2023 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Cloud cover will increase through the day ahead of a northward moving low pressure area that will begin to deliver rain by late evening. The continuous south-southwesterly winds will bring the warmer and moister air into the region, with morning lows in the low 40’s and afternoon highs in the low 60’s.

It’s a “B” 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.
