Your RI Weather Today, Nov. 5, 2021 – John Donnelly

John Donnelly, meteorologist

Still under the control of high pressure to the north, we’ll see mostly sunny and clear conditions through the day with a light northerly  breeze. Some morning frost on the windshields to deal with and a low in the mid 30’s rise to the low 50’s in a clear and sunny afternoon .


Jack Donnelly

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!
