RI Weather Today, July 13, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Similar conditions as yesterday, Partly cloudy with gusty southwesterly breezes and humid air. Less energy aloft, so showers and thunderstorms will not be as prevalent, maybe a brief shower in the evening over the northern reaches of the area. Lows in the upper 60’s and highs in the lower 80’s with that southwesterly breeze gusting to 30 mph.


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.
