RI Weather Today, July 11, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure remains in control, mostly, but low pressure over southeastern Canada will press in and increase the pressure gradient, which means some breezy conditions headed in for the afternoon. Gusts around 30 mph out of the southwest blow the treetops around, but nothing more significant than that, unless brilliant sunshine is considered significant. Morning lows in the low 60’s warm to the low 80’s.

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.
