RI Weather Today, July 15, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure builds in with some more tolerable dryness bringing down the apparent temperature. Afternoon highs will still climb into the 80’s from morning lows in the mid 60’s with a light southwesterly breeze shifting from north earlier.



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.
