RI Weather Today, Tues, July 12, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure relents slightly, as a cold front gatherers steam well to our northwest and kicks off some showers/thunderstorms inland, and maybe we’ll catch a shower or two later in the evening, but at that point most of the energy will have been suppressed by the bay influence.

All of this southwesterly wind will draw in more humidity, so we’ll feel a bit more muggy than the last few days. Morning lows in the upper 60’s and afternoon highs in the low 80’s with wind gusts towards 30 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.
