RI Weather Today, July 3, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

The cold front finally clears out, scouring away what morning cloud cover will be hanging around, so the afternoon should be quite nice with lowering dew points for more pleasant air that’s not so cloying and heavy. Morning lows in the mid 60’s warming to the mid 80’s with a light northwesterly 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.
