RI Weather Today, July 4, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Fourth of July 7/4/22:

About as good as it gets, warm, dry, very light westerly breeze, no rain. Morning low starts in the low 60’s and rises to the low to mid 80’s with low dew points, so nice and dry.

Happy Independence Day!


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.
