Your RI Weather Today, Jan. 31, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Cold air settles in after whatever incoming solar radiation was rejected by the snow covered ground like soup with a hair in it in your favorite restaurant.

Morning lows in the single digits followed by afternoon highs in the upper 20’s with a light southerly breeze under mostly clear skies, maybe some high cirrus later in the day. 


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.
