RI Weather Today, June 6, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure builds in from the south with mostly sunny skies during the day. Some high clouds roll over during the afternoon, but nothing in the way of rain in the afternoon. Morning lows in the low 80’s after morning lows in the low 50’s with a southerly breeze 10-15 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.
