Your RI Weather Today, April 28, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Low pressure off of the New England coast retrogrades a little bit (backs up…), and the resulting pressure gradient between it and the high pressure that continues to build in will keep the northwest winds gusting through the day towards 30 mph. Still partly cloudy, no chance of rain with super dry air in the lower levels. On the cooler side, morning lows in the upper 30’s warming to the low 50’s in the afternoon.


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.
