Your RI Weather Today, Jan. 10, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure works in and begins to clear things out, but this will come at a price: Monday’s high temp will occur at midnight and then hitch a ride on a downward spiral until the evening, when lows are expected to drop to the upper teens and then continue on down from there, but that is Tuesday’s problem.

Clouds will thicken through the day with a northwesterly breeze weakening as the day progresses.


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.
