RI Weather for Dec. 1, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Cool air rushes in behind the cold front that will be well out to sea upon daybreak, northwesterly winds still gusting through the day to 35 mph, so there’s potential for more downed limbs and power outages. Brisk morning and evening lows in the mid 30’s surround chilly highs in the low 40’s during a sparsely clouded afternoon.


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.
