RI Weather for August 25, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

An influx of dry air at least during the afternoon will drag the relative humidity down and help things feel a little better. Some late afternoon cloud cover moves in ahead of low pressure advancing through the mid Atlantic states, but we’ll be spared any rain for now. Morning lows in the upper 60’s rise to the upper 80’s with a light southerly 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.
