Rhode Island Weather, May 26, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Not a lot of change from yesterday, typical late May afternoon with highs in the upper 60’s from morning lows around 50 with a southerly wind gusting to 25 mph. Another low pressure system will approach from the west, but get shredded by our solid high pressure situation here. Enjoy another classic late spring afternoon.


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.
