RI Weather Today, May 4, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Low pressure system rolls in from the west and southwest with light rain likely off and on through the morning and ending sometime in the early evening. We’ll probably have some morning mist to deal with with low level moisture moving in ahead of the system. Morning lows in the upper 40’s rise to the mid 50’s with the rain.


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.
