RI Weather July 26, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Tuesday 7/26/22:

A much different airmass moves in for our enjoyment/relief, unless you like skin-stuck-to-leather mugginess. Dew points will be 20 degrees lower and afternoon highs will be 10 degrees lower, somewhere in the mid 80’s from morning lows in the mid 60’s with a light westerly breeze. High cloud cover will spill in from the south ahead of low pressure that will stay to our south and will not produce any rain for these parts.


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.
