RI Weather Today, June 20, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure to our west keeps us under a clear sky with northerly breezes gusting to 25 mph once again. Dry air an improvement, with low dewpoints and mild temperatures. We’ll have an afternoon high in the mid to upper 70’s after a morning low in the low to mid 50’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.
