Your RI Weekend Weather Wrap, Nov. 20/21, 2021

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Saturday 11/20/21:

High pressure builds in and keeps things calm through the day, if a little on the chilly side. Low 30’s in the morning warm to the mid 40’s in the afternoon with initially clear skies beginning to cloud up later in the day ahead of a weak developing low pressure area.

Sunday 11/21/21:

A weak trough moves through in the predawn hours with some light showers ending a bit after daybreak. Clouds will stick around for most of the day with a break or two before the next system rolls in. Morning lows in the mid and upper 30’s rise to the mid 50’s with a light southerly breeze.


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!
