Your RI Weather Today, Nov. 24, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A chilly, sub-freezing start to our Wednesday with morning lows in the upper 20’s. Brilliant sunshine through most of the day will be countered by the cool canadian airmass driven by northwesterly breezes gusting to 20 mph, so we’re expecting an afternoon high only in the low 40’s.


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!
