RI Weather for Nov 15, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A low pressure system sneaks through later in the evening and overnight hours with light rain expected until early to mid Wednesday morning. There is the chance for some light snow mixed in towards the higher elevations north and west of the city, but you will have to be a night owl to see the first snow of the year.

Morning lows in the lower 30’s rise to the mid 40’s in the afternoon and dip again towards the snow-enabling freezing mark later in the overnight. Winds will be light and variable through the day.


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.
