Your RI Weather Today, Oct. 14, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Another nice one, a bit warmer with afternoon highs in the mid 70’s with light northerly breeze, after morning lows around 60 as a light mist develops once again with fog along coastal areas. Some cloud cover builds later in the day as a frontal system approaches from the distant west.

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!
