RI Weather for June 9, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Another cold front moves through ahead of which rain will fall beginning around 3-4am and last until early afternoon. A southwesterly draw of warm air ahead of the front will give high temps a boost, topping out in the low 80’s in the afternoon before falling to the low 60’s once again as winds shift to northwesterly behind the frontal passage.


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.
