RI Weather Today, June 16, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Stable air remains in place through most of the day with a frontal system approaching late, cloud cover being the only damper. Any rain we get will come after midnight. Another fairly cool morning low in the upper 50’s followed by an afternoon high in the mid 70’s with a southerly breeze 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.
