RI Weather Today, June 7, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure still in place, yet beginning to recede as a cold front begins to approach the area from the west with cloud cover the main result during the day, some overnight rain showers towards the dawn. Morning lows in the upper 50’s with afternoon highs in the upper 70’s with a breeze gusting out of the south-southwest to 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.
