Your Weather for May 1, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

May Day brings a slight change in the weather, as a warm front will slowly advance our way from the southwest, a bit more in the way of afternoon cloud cover, but any small chance of light showers should hold off until the overnight hours.Morning lows again in the upper 30’s warming to the upper 50’s with a lighter breeze shifting from northwesterly to westerly.


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.
