RI Weather for September 28, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure remains in place off of the southern New England coast keeping us in the clear, save some scattered afternoon clouds as a weak cold front sneaks through the area. The frontal passage will mean a wind shift and nearly nothing more, just the aforementioned clouds. Morning lows will bottom out in the low 50’s and warm to the upper 60’s during the afternoon.


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.
