RI Weather for September 30, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure still in place over southern New England, so a similar temperature scheme with the same dry air in place for another day. High clouds from what remains of Hurricane Ian will be streaming in aloft through the day, thickening up later, but no precip expected just yet. Morning lows in the upper 40’s warm to the mid 60’s with a light northeasterly breeze.


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.
