RI Weather for Fri, July 29, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Warm and a bit drier for the most part, until winds shift to southwesterly ahead of another front with low pressure squeezed out ahead. This low will trigger some rain showers and embedded thunderstorms later in the evening and overnight hours. Morning lows around 70 rise to around 90.


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.
