RI Weather Today, June 12, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

An advancing warm front ahead of low pressure over the midwest will eventually trigger some light rain beginning around midday and carrying on through the day and night. Morning lows in the low 60’s rising to highs in the mid 70’s with a south-southwesterly breeze gusting to 25 mph in the afternoon.


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.
