Your RI Weather Today, Dec. 27, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A partly cloudy start with cool morning lows in the upper 20’s. Cloud cover thickens and slowly moves in aloft, as yet another little mid-western storm system begins percolating and oozing through the eastern US.

Eventually we could see some drops of cold rain or some slight mixing with flakes in the unnoticed overnight hours. Winds generally light out of the northwest, afternoon highs in the mid 30’s.


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.
