RI Weather for November 18, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Cool air remains in place with winds generally out of the west-southwest gusting towards 25 mph keeping the chill temps down about ten degrees below the actual air temperature, so afternoon highs in the mid 40’s will feel like the mid 30’s from morning lows in the low 30’s. Air will be dry, so frost risk will be low. Cloud cover will be minimal, so lot’s of sun to counteract somewhat the cool air.


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.
