Your RI Weather Today, March 4, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure slides further to the southeast over the area keeping the skies clear, but the cool air in place. Afternoon highs only in the mid 30’s from chilly morning lows in the teens. Winds remain fairly light with a few gusts approaching 20 mph.


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.
