Rhode Island Weather, May 20, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Partly cloudy skies through most of the day. A weak disturbance moves through later in the evening with some light rain during the overnight hours. Afternoon highs in the low 70’s from morning lows in the low 50’s with a southerly breeze.


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.
