RI Weather for Aug. 2, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Typical warm and muggy summer day with the slight chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm before they get wiped out. Morning lows around 70 with some mist and light fog warming to afternoon highs in the upper 80’s with a southwesterly breeze.


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.
