RI Weather Today, July 18, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A warm front moves in from the southwest bringing high humidity, clouds and midday showers that may last into the afternoon. Southerly winds gusting to 25 mph keep the moist air rolling in ahead of the cold front that won’t make it through until Tuesday. Morning lows around 70 with afternoon highs around 80.



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.
