A cold front passes in the night with rain ending around midnight, coinciding with the high temperature for the day in the upper 50’s. Cooler air gradually infiltrates the area as cloud cover and humidity diminish. By the time evening arrives, temps will be dropping through the upper 30’s. Winds will gust through the day as they shift from westerly to north-northwesterly, weakening after sunset.
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.
