RI Weather for January 26, 2023 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Rain ends early in the morning as the warmish winter storm heads out to sea. Winds remain up through most of the day out of the west-southwest gusting 30 to 40 mph, eventually waning as the afternoon turns to night, and calmer and drier conditions fill in over the area. We’ll have a rare sunrise high around 50, and a late evening low in the mid 30’s, as rain chances fall to zero point zero.


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.
