RI Weekend Weather Wrap – May 14/15, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Saturday 5/14/22:

We have a chance to crack the 80 degree ceiling today, southerly flow, some afternoon sunshine, an overall decent mid May day. We’ll have to overcome some morning mist and light fog, and maybe a late evening shower, but not enough to dampen the minty goodness of spring warmth. Morning lows bottoms out around 60 and afternoon breezes gusting around 25 mph.

Sunday 5/15/22:

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.
