As a warm front associated with low pressure along the east coast drifts northward, rain will begin by late morning and carry on through the day and night with varying degrees of intensity, mostly light, with some bouts of slightly heavier rain in the early afternoon. Morning lows in the mid to upper 40’s rising to the upper 50’s with an increasing breeze from the northeast gusting to 25 mph


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.
