RI Weather for Nov. 17, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Continued westerly winds will help usher in dry air that will eat away at any morning cloud cover that hangs around. Westerly gusts in the 20-30 mph range will bring wind chills down into the 30’s during the day, dampening some of the sun’s warming power. Still a nice day, though, morning lows in the low to mid 30’s and afternoon highs in the mid 40’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.
