Your RI Weather Today, Dec. 29, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A couple of frontal systems combine to provide a variety of precipitation, from snow in the early morning up to an inch, followed later in the evening by light rain, with maybe a rare sighting of the sun in between.

Temps will warm once the snow has passed and warm air fills in to afternoon highs in the low 40’s from morning lows in the mid 30’s with a light northerly 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.
