RI Weather Today, July 19, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

The rain-inducing cold front will have passed in the night, allowing for drier air to filter into the area. Still on the humid side with dew points in the mid 60’s. Sunshine busts through for the afternoon with highs punching into the low 90’s after morning lows in the low 70’s with a west-southwesterly breeze gusting to 25 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.
