Rhode Island Weather, May 27, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A decent start to the day with partly cloudy skies and a morning low in the mid 60’s. Warming up to the mid 70’s with a southerly breeze gusting into the mid 20’s during the afternoon as cloud cover increases ahead of an approaching cold front.

We’ll probably see some showers beginning around 10 pm and carrying through the night.


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.
