RI Weather Today, July 7, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A weak low pressure area forms over the central Appalachians and swings out to sea south of us, so we’ll be spared any rain. We’ll see some scattered cloud cover on a southeasterly breeze, but that’s about it. High in the upper 70’s with lower dewpoints, after a morning low in the mid 60’s.


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.
