Your Weather, May 2, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

A slow moving occluded frontal system creeps by, generating some afternoon and evening light rain showers that will end sometime in the darkness of Monday night. Morning lows in the mid 40’s rise only to the predictably cool mid 50’s in the afternoon,with a light southeasterly breeze. First drops likely around 3-4pm.


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.
