RI Weather for January 24, 2023 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Cleanup time for the first Nor’Easter of Winter. Should be easy, as we had all of an inch to deal with, a touch more in isolated locations. High pressure will fill in over the area with breezy westerly winds gusting to 30 mph under partly cloudy skies and a temperate feel to the air, afternoon highs once again above normal around 40 degrees from morning lows in the upper 20’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.
