Stuff to make using the site easier ..

I use abbreviations for many things:
PB = Peterborough
KE = Keene NH
Precip = Precipitation
SWS = Special Weather Statements
I will continue to add more to this list as I think of them.
I update the forecasts by 7AM and 7PM each day...more frequently if some weather thing is going on. On weekends by 9AM.
Make sure your browser is set to allow "pop-ups" from this site. I use them extensively and there is no danger of any viruses or anything like that.

I am based in Peterborough, NH, but the main forecasts (for now) are for Nashua, NH and the region. I send out an e-mail every Thursday that covers the upcoming weekend forecast. I also send out advisories when issued by the NWS to this list. You will NEVER get SPAM or e-mail from anyone else. I don't share my mail list with anyone. If you'd like to be a part of that mailing, send your e-mail address to: Mail List

What is a "ShortWave"?

Also known as Shortwave Trough; a disturbance in the mid or upper part of the atmosphere which induces upward motion ahead of it. If other conditions are favorable, the upward motion can contribute to thunderstorm development ahead of a shortwave.

MCS = Mesoscale Convective System (Bunch of thunderstorms)

How I started...

I've been a weather hobbyist all of my life. As a child, I used to stand outside in the rain during thunderstorms just to watch the lightning. Back in the '70s getting weather information was a chore. I remember listening to NWS broadcasts during hurricane season and plotting these on a piece of paper. After moving to New England I finally bought my first real weather station made by Davis Instruments. I began to record daily weather data in a journal. I had a few people, where I work, who knew I was a weather nut, ask me to send them an e-mail on the weekend forecast. So two grew to five then 15, then 40, and now my Thursday weekend mail list reaches over 200+ people. I took some web programming classes in the late '90s and a few years after that RichLefko.com was born. I wanted to share my hobby with anyone who was interested, and I am quite overwhelmed with how many people seem to be interested. I've gotten so many "thank you's" for a variety of reasons..."saved my party", "saved my wedding", "saved my life." It's been fun and rewarding all at the same time.
Thanks for visiting RichLefko.com. Please tell your friends and family.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

A very comfortable getaway day for a folks traveling for the holiday weekend...each day of the three day weekend will be very different weather wise.

Beautiful day today with lots of bright sunshine, lower humidity levels and light winds. Highs will be in the 70s with a sea breeze developing along the shoreline this afternoon.

Another cool night is expected: 47-55° by daybreak Saturday.

The holiday weekend:

Saturday: The brightest and most comfortable of the three days. Mostly sunny skies tomorrow morning turns partly sunny in the afternoon. Temps will be a few degrees warmer than today: 72-81° with a sea breeze again at the coastline.

Sunday: After an increase in clouds Saturday night, any sort of early sun will give way to clouds and building humidity. Some t-showers will be developing in the afternoon, especially in western and northern NH and will continue on and off in Sunday evening.

Labor Day, Monday: Not a washout...could be a lingering shower early. More clouds than sun...still fairly humid and a small chance of a pop up t-shower in the afternoon, lots of dry hours to the day.

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!
