RI Weekend Weather Wrap, Nov. 5/6, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Saturday 11/5/22:

         High pressure moves offshore as a cold front developing well to our west adds some cloud cover and warmer air on southwesterly breezes gusting around 25 mph. Some morning mist with saturated lows in the upper 50’s rise to the low 70’s.

Sunday 11/6/22:

         Similar pattern to Sunday, with the exception of less mist as more cloud cover keeps the air from completely saturating in the morning. Lows in the low 60’s and afternoon highs in the low 70’s with a southwesterly breeze gusting 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.
