RI Weather Today, June 19, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A fairly weak trough of low pressure will swing through early, kicking up some pre-dawn showers. A north-northwesterly breeze should prevail through the day with morning lows in the mid 50’s and afternoon highs in the upper 60’s under mid level cloud cover.

A “B” Day to all those dads and the families who celebrate them – Happy Father’s Day!


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.
