RI Weather Condition for Friday, August 5, 2022 – John Donnelly

by John Donnelly, meteorologist

Another hot one today, however with something in the method of relief in the type of extra cloud cover for some periodic shade disrupting the blistering sun.

A seaside border will attempt to establish in the early afternoon, which might be the trigger for some spread showers and maybe a thunderstorm. Early morning lows in the mid 70’s increase to around 90 with high dewpoints in the 70’s weighing us down like wet and moldy blankets.

Winds will be light, typically less than 10 miles per hour, so no cooling result from moving air today.

As a kid John constantly would like to know how air moved, and he ran towards, not far from, thunder and lighting and different other threatening weather condition phenomena. He returned in 2001 to the old household area of Elmhurst where the McCabe’s, Donnelly’s, Walker’s and Callan’s have actually been because after the Civil War
