Rhode Island Weather, May 25, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A repeat of yesterday basically, high pressure just to the east with southeasterly winds gusting to 25 mph under a sparsely clouded sky. Chilly morning lows in the upper 40’s warm only to the upper 60’s. No threat of any rain as the low pressure system to the south has been turned away by the high pressure.


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.
