Rhode Island Weather, May 29, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Once the front clears away, drying will occur through the day with only a few clouds here and there. Plenty of sun, and a warmer afternoon, highs in the mid 80’s from a crisp low in the upper 50’s. Winds light and variable in the morning, then turning southerly in the afternoon and once again some gusts reaching around 25 mph.



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.
