Your RI Weather Today, Feb. 21, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure to our southeast will bring warmer air around from the southwest, so afternoon highs will crack the low 50’s from morning lows around freezing.

The southwesterly breezes will weaken through the day, and any liquid weather will stay out of our hair.


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
