RI Weather, July 31, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A sunny start with lows in the mid 60’s begins to cloud over later in the afternoon ash highs once again hover in the mid 80’s with a southwesterly breeze. Any showers should pass to our south late in the night.


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.
