Your RI Weather Today, March 15, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Warmer air feeds in with afternoon highs approaching 60 after morning lows in the low 40’s and a light west-southwesterly breeze. A frontal system will crawl into northern New England, and eventually generate some showers for this area in the evening hours. 


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.
