RI Weather for August 1, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Low pressure skirts to our south coast with some light predawn and midday showers expected to open up the month of August.. Not a lot of big energy aloft, so nothing major. Dew points will be on the rise with the southerly breeze off the water, so humidity will be up. Morning lows around 70 rise to the upper 70’s under mostly cloudy sky breaking through later towards evening.


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.
