Your RI Weather Today, Dec. 2, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Some light rain ends early then clouds try to break up somewhat through midday and into the afternoon as a cold front moves in from the west. Some cloud cover thickens again in the evening with the chance for a shower or two late.

Afternoon highs in the mid 50’s after morning lows in the low 40’s with a southwesterly breeze gusting towards 30 mph with the frontal passage.


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!
