RI Weather for Nov. 30, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A pretty stout low pressure system moves through the area during the day with rain and high winds expected. After some morning mist under thickening cloud cover and a low temp in the mid 30’s, warming southeasterly winds will be accelerating ahead of the cold front, driving temps up to the upper 50’s, and eventually shifting to southwesterly, ranging from 20-30 mph with gusts approaching and perhaps exceeding 50 mph! Hang on to something solidly anchored! Rain should begin around noon and carry through til 9pm, generally light, with some pockets of heavier downpours in the mix.


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.
