Rhode Island weather for May 1, 2023 – John Donnelly




by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Rain ends in the pre-dawn hours as the frontal system finally moves out of the area to the northeast and takes April with it. Winds will still be gusting to around 30 mph out of the south-southwest and gradually diminishing during the afternoon as cloud cover thins. Afternoon highs will reach the low 60’s and evening lows drop into the upper 40’s.

It’s a “B” day!

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.
