Your RI Weather Today, Jan. 13, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure still sits in place and slowly churns warmer air into the area on light southerly winds. We’ll see temps warm from the upper 20’s to the low 40’s in the afternoon as cloud cover begins to thicken ahead of developing low pressure over the southeastern US.

Friday’s weather could be a little troubling.


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.
