Rhode Island Weather, May 24, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure builds in with some easterly breezes that will keep the temps from climbing too high. Afternoon highs in the upper 60’s and evening lows in the low 50’s with winds generally out of the east gusting to 25 mph. No rain, as the low pressure system will remain well to our south.


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.
