RI Weather Today, June 29, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Squeezed by systems distant to our southeast and northwest, we will sit in a good situation for the day with excellent air. Warm and dry with a light southwesterly breeze, morning lows in the low 60’s followed by afternoon highs in the low 80’s, totally normal for this time of year. We’re up about an inch above normal precip for the month, so things should stay deep green for awhile yet to come.


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.
