Your RI Weather Today, Oct. 28, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Our low pressure menace will finally slink away out to sea after wreaking havoc with loose and weakened limbs and branches, leaving behind a few downed power lines to boot. We’ll be left with some lingering breezes and a gust or two in the morning approaching 25 mph or so, and the dense overcast shroud will thin and break in the afternoon. Morning and evening lows in the mid 40’s bookend an afternoon high in the low 50’s.

“Cleanup, all aisles…”

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!
