RI Weather for January 19, 2023 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly meteorologist

A low pressure system will pass just to our south with overrunning cloud cover and rain beginning around midday and continuing through the night. Light southerly breezes allow the rain to be the straight-down version this time. Temps will remain above freezing from morning lows in the mid 30’s to high in the low 40’s.


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.
