Your Weekend Weather Wrap, April 30/May 1 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Saturday 4/30/22:

Same broken record pattern with high pressure to the southwest and low pressure to the northeast, giving us gusty northwesterly winds through the day. Still dry, so cloud cover will be scattered in the mid and high levels, keeping something like a cap on high temperatures, our highs getting to the upper 50’s from chilly morning lows in the upper 30’s.

Sunday 5/1/22:

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.
