Your RI Weather Today, September 30, 2021 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorolgist

Still cool, with an upper level low centered over the Canadian Maritimes, a reflected surface trough wheeling around will generate an early shower or two around sunrise before moving east and leaving behind partly cloudy skies thinning with time.

Morning and evening lows in the low 50’s bookend an afternoon high in the low 60’s with a light northwesterly breeze.


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!
