RI Weather Today, July 5, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Ahead of an approaching warm front, our perfectly sunny holiday weather will begin deteriorating, with some evening light rain fairly likely from around sunset to midnight. Morning lows settle in the mid 60’s and rise to the low 80’s on southwesterly breezes 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.
