RI Weather Today, June 22, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Our warm front gets held back to our west as some impulses swing through in the morning, with a slight chance for some scattered light showers.

Cloud cover should thin during the afternoon, but high temps will only get to about 70 from morning lows in the low 60’s with a southeasterly 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.
