Your RI Weather Today, Jan. 6, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A rather bland weather Thursday, calm before the storm, one might say. Partly cloudy with westerly breezes and normal temperature range with highs in the upper 30’s and lows in the low 30’s.

Cloud cover will begin thickening late as a coastal low develops and threatens some snow Friday morning.

Initial accumulation guess between 2-4 inches.


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.
