RI Weather Today, June 23, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

The stalled out front remains to our west, and a weak area of low pressure moves in from the sea, but any of the rains will keep away from the area. We should have fairly dry low level air, meaning low relative humidity, and decent warmth, afternoon highs in the upper 70’s from morning lows around 60. A southeasterly breeze will keep things moving, gusts around 20 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.
