RI Weather Today, July 8, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Low pressure stays well to our south, so rain-free for us. Some cloud cover and slightly higher humidity the only things of any note. Morning lows in the lo 60’s rise to afternoon highs in the low 80’s with a south-southwesterly 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.
