A decent morning to start the weekend, mostly clear with lows in the low 40’s warming to around 60 in the afternoon before another weak disturbance rolls through and kicks up some showers in the late afternoon with a southeasterly breeze. They will be quick, ending by 6pm after which things improve heading into Sunday.

Sunday 11/14/21:

A chilly start to a mostly clear morning, lows in the upper 30’s warm only to the low 50’s with a light westerly breeze. Cloud cover increases ahead of the next weather system to strike later in the night with some light rain expected in the wee Monday hours.


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!
