RI Weather, Sunday, June 26, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

The high pressure strengthens and drives more heat and humidity our way on stronger southwesterly breezes gusting to 25 mph, which will make the heat slightly more tolerable. Morning lows in the mid 60’s rise to 90 and above here and there.


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.
