Your RI Weather Today, Dec. 19, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Storm system having mostly moved to our east, we will see more sunshine as we move through the day as dry air comes back again. Afternoon highs will top out in the low 40’s and finish out in the upper 20’s with a gusty northwesterly 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.
