RI Weather Today, June 5, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure settles in nicely, with lots of sunshine and warmer afternoon temperatures topping out in the mid 70’s from morning lows in the upper 50’s. A northwesterly breeze will keep the dry air fresh, some gusts popping around 25 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.
