RI Weather for Mon, May 23, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A cold front continues out to sea taking any showers with it. As it carries further away, the pressure gradient will loosen up, meaning gradually diminishing winds. We’ll have lots of sun in the afternoon with some cloud cover increasing later in the day ahead of the next weather maker to our southwest.

Highs  in the mid 70’s and evening lows in the low 60’s with winds gusting in the 20’s early.


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.
