RI Weather for November 23, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Not a great deal of 24-hour change, but a bit warmer and slightly faster northwesterly breezes accompanied by late afternoon scattered high cloud cover. Morning lows off the freezing mark generally, but some locales could dip down to 32 and below, but low RH will keep most of the frost off of the windshields for last minute morning supermarket runs.

Afternoon highs reach 50 with a light northwesterly breeze and the occasional gust towards 20 mph, that can be used to rake up the last bit of leaf fall.


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.
