RI Weather for September 22, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A cold front moves through the area with rain beginning around 6am and lasting into the late afternoon. There’s the chance for some embedded thunderstorms in the mix, and with them some heavier downpours are possible, so watch for some localized street flooding.

Muggy highs in the low 70’s and evening lows down into the mid 50’s behind the frontal passage helped along by cool and dry northwesterly winds.


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.
