RI Weather for Dec. 8, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Cold front with rain is out of our hair, and dry air will filter in through the day. Afternoon highs in the low 50’s will cool to the mid 30’s by evening as dry air and minimal cloud cover allow for radiational cooling. Winds will be fairly steady out of the north-northwest, gusting towards 20 mph.

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.
