RI Weather for Nov. 16, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Our overnight low pressure system will take it’s sweet time moving through the area in the morning with showers and embedded heavier rain until about 10am, lingering light showers ending by midday. Winds will shift from southwesterly to westerly as the cold front passes and cloud cover begins to break up with eventual clearing by the early evening hours.

Morning and evening lows will be in the low to mid 30’s surrounding afternoon highs in the low 50’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.
