Your RI Weather, Nov. 26, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A low pressure system moves through the area with light rain continuing through late afternoon and ending with a few light snow showers mainly to the western elevated half of the state. No accumulation expected, just a preview of Winter. Lovely.

Daytime highs reach only the mid 40’s with evening lows in the mid 30’s with a wind shifting from southwesterly to northwesterly and increasing, with 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.

A meteorologist, John also is an avid golfer, runner, reader, hack guitarist, and walker. If you see a weatherman walking in a blue Jim Cantore weather jacket carrying an umbrella, look out!
