RI Weather Today, July 14, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Warm and humid with the chance for afternoon showers and maybe an isolated thunderstorm in the mix as a weak area of low pressure skirts the coast. Morning lows around 70 rise to the mid 80’s with a weak southwesterly breeze.


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.
