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.

Strong winds are mostly confined to eastern areas from Nashua NH south. Rainfall is pin wheeling around the low and pulling in lots of ocean moisture from Georges Banks. Another area of heavy rainfall will impact SE later this morning. I am approaching 2" of rainfall in PB. Heavy rain through this morning tapering down to showery weather this afternoon and tonight. Showers continue tonight into Friday morning with some breaks in the overcast possible in western and central areas later in the day. I will be sending out the Weekend Outlook E-mail FRIDAY MORNING instead of the usual Thursday night.

10/22 - 6:15 PM: A stormy night ahead. This Nor'Easter is taking its sweet time ramping up and heading to the north. So the heaviest rain now appears likely tonight into midday Thursday before tapering off to showers. A widespread 1" to 2.5" rainfall is now expected with the eastern half of the region under a Flood Watch where 3"+ may fall. Localized 4" totals are possible. Winds will be on the increase in eastern area and that will drive coastal flooding at high tides tonight. Isolated thunderstorms are also possible. The storm system begins to pull into the Gulf of Maine and the Maritimes by Thursday night and Friday with showers slowly tapering off Thursday night into Friday. I will have the weekend outlook up in the morning. A Wind Advisory has just been issued.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Rain (heavy at times) continues today along with the northeast wind, flood watches remain in effect through the afternoon...the weekend looks much better than this!

Today will feature more of the same...rain, cool temps and gusty winds at times. The heaviest rain will be focused in southern NH this morning and will head north into central and northern NH for the afternoon. While major or even moderate flooding is not expected, an additional 1-2" of rain today could mean some minor flooding along some small rivers and streams and in areas of poor drainage (watch those storm drains clogged with fallen leaves).

Friday will be a bit unsettled but showers will be much more spotty by afternoon, and mostly in northern and central NH. There could even be some breaks of sun in southern areas.

Now to the weekend...Saturday looks partly sunny and pleasantly cool before a weak system darts through from the northwest Saturday night into part of Sunday. The most clouds and scattered showers will be in northern areas.

A warming trend will develop during the early to mid part of next week.

These "discussions" come from the National Weather Service, WMUR TV Manchester NH, or me.
