Your RI Weather Today, Jan. 30, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A clear and calm day to regroup and clean up, watch the plows navigate the speed bumps, let the chips fall where they may.

Morning and evening lows in the single digits bookending an afternoon high in the low 20’s under clear skies and a much less taxing westerly breeze less than 10 mph.

A day to clean up! Take it slowly. Ask for help if you need it.


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.
