RI Weather for Thurs, August 4, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A lot like yesterday, only hotter. Morning lows in the low 70’s followed by afternoon highs in the low 90’s with a southwesterly breeze gusting to 25 mph. Some clouds may roll in later in the evening with showers well to our northwest.

Another Summer heat wave.


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.
