RI Weather Today, July 21, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist


Another scorcher, highs busting into the low 90’s with dew points in the 70’s….beat-you-down apparent temperature around 100. More cloud cover today, so some relief, and the outside chance for a late day shower or thunderstorm. A breeze out of the south will gust 20-30 mph again.


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.
