Your RI Weather Today, Dec. 21, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure still rules the roost, however, a developing frontal system over the southeastern US will move gradually up the coast and spread gradually increasing cloud cover and eventually some late night showers to the area. A bit warmer, with afternoon highs in the mid 40’s from morning lows in the low 30’s and breezes generally less than 10 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.
