Your RI Weather Today, Nov. 11, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure keeps relatively stable air in place for most of the day. A frontal system developing well to our west with cloud cover moving in ahead. Any rain should hold off until Friday. Morning lows in the mid 30’s will warm to the upper 50’s with a light southeasterly breeze.

To our Veterans – this day is for you.


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.

A meteorologist, John also is an avid golfer, runner, reader, hack guitarist, and walker. If you see a weatherman walking in a blue Jim Cantore weather jacket carrying an umbrella, look out!
