Rhode Island Weather, May 30, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Memorial Day 5/30/22:

         An excellent finish for Memorial Day weekend! Warm and dry with a southwesterly breeze to blow around lots of flags. Brisk morning low in the upper 50’s followed by warm afternoon highs in the mid 80’s with lots of sun and some afternoon fair weather cloud cover.


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.
