RI Weather for September 8, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Lingering cloud cover eventually gets forced out by drying air and high pressure. Morning lows sink to the upper 50’s and rise to the low 70’s with added sunshine and a light northeasterly breeze. Rain remains well off shore and in the rearview mirror.


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.
