Your RI Weather Today, Dec. 10, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A warm front wraps around the outskirts of southern New England and kicks up some early morning light showers that may mix in with some snow before moving out to sea. High pressure tries to clear things up a bit, but overrunning cloud cover moves in and puts a damper on that idea, as another mid-western storm system develops and sets its sights on us for the next couple of days.

Morning lows in the upper 20’s rise to the mid 40’s with a light southerly breeze.


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.
