Your RI Weather Today, Nov. 18, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

High pressure gives way to a frontal system that eventually will kick up some evening light rain showers and a wind shift. In the meantime, we should benefit from warm sector high temperatures in the mid 60’s from morning lows in the low 50’s and a light southwesterly breeze gusting in the afternoon and shifting to west-northwesterly after the frontal passage overnight into early Friday morning.


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!
