Your RI Weather Today, Dec. 24, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A batch of snow showers will pass through the area and be done by 9 or 10 am. No accumulations are expected as this is a fast and weak event. Just window dressing for Christmas Eve morning.

Cloud cover will stick around as the warm front responsible for the snow hangs over southern New England. Morning lows in the mid 20’s rise to the low 30’s with a light breeze generally from the East.


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.
