RI Weather Today, July 6, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Last night’s showers and rain end before sunrise, but we’ll have to deal with lingering stickies through the morning until the cold front escorts in some dry air. Morning lows hover around 70 and climb to the mid and upper 80’s with a wind shifting from southwesterly to northwesterly by days end, cloud cover breaking, thinning and skedaddling in the process.


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.
