RI Weather Today, May 15, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Nearly a carbon copy of Saturday, but maybe a few degrees cooler, but still very nice and warm, afternoon highs to reach into the upper 70’s from morning misty lows around 60 with the persistent southerly breeze gusting occasionally in the mid 20 mph range.


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.
