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.

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

9/28 -  6:02 PM: We remained mostly cloudy up here in NH today, while down in SE MA a wind driven drizzle made it feel raw outside. Coastal Maine saw some sunshine. Strong high pressure will remain parked to our NE in Canada and that will prevent an area of rain in the Mid-Atlantic states from moving northeast on Thursday. As the high begins to move off later Thursday moisture and showers will slowly begin to move into the region. Right now the weekend looks damp. I will have the weekend forecast up in the grids above tomorrow morning, and that will be followed by the every Thursday evening Weekend Outlook E-mail blast. Sign up for no spam e-mails below. We are watching Tropical Storm Matthew that could bring trouble to New England. Still way too early, but the early models are causing some concern. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Canadian high pressure will continue to build into the region
from the north through Thursday. The high will remain parked to
our north while low pressure over the midwest drifts slowly north
and east. Moisture from this system may spread into southern areas
Friday. The best chance of rain will be this weekend when a large
upper level low pressure system over the Great Lakes lifts to the
north, and may spread rain into New England.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Onshore winds will bring patchy drizzle and fog through tonight
and into tomorrow morning with a brief break by tomorrow
afternoon. A wave of low pressure passing south of the region will
result in cloudy/cool weather with periods of showers Friday into
Saturday, which may linger into Sunday. Some improvement in the
weather is expected early next week, but still can not rule out a
period of showers.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...
Highlights...

* Periods of showers and drizzle Fri into Sat with cool afternoons
* Some showers and drizzle may linger into Sun
* Drier weather Mon-Wed but a period of showers remain poss.

9/28 -  6:54 AM: We are entering an unsettled weather pattern. Most of the next couple of days will be dry, lots of clouds, maybe some light showers or some drizzle. A better chance of showers by Friday and into the upcoming weekend. Cool temps through the period with highs in the low 60s. We are watching a tropical wave that could bring trouble to New England. Still way too early, but the early models are causing some concern. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Canadian high pressure will continue to build into the region
from the north today through Thursday. The high will remain parked
to our north while low pressure over the midwest drifts slowly
north and east. Moisture from this system may spread into southern
areas Friday. The best chance of rain will be this weekend when a
large upper level low pressure system over the Great Lakes lifts
to the north, and may spread rain into New England.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A stalled front south of New England will keep the threat of
showers through this evening mainly along the coast. Onshore winds
may also bring patchy drizzle and fog through tonight. A cool and
unsettled pattern will persist into the weekend, before slow
improvement early next week.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...

*/ Highlights...

- A cool, dreary, wet-weather pattern through Sunday

OWC - Video Contest - 9/28/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Today starts a cooler pattern, later this week starts a more unsettled pattern that is centered on our weekend.

An onshore flow takes over today as we start the day with a lot of clouds and some patchy drizzle. Clouds will give way to some sunshine (especially in western and northern areas where temps will climb into the lower half of the 60s.) Closer to the coastline, clouds will likely be a little more stubborn and with more of a northeasterly wind, winds in the upper 50s will feel even cooler than that.

Thursday looks a bit nicer. We should be mostly dry (can't rule out a spot shower or sprinkle) with some sunshine. Highs still will be quite cool: lower to mid 60s, with a lighter wind.

The unsettled stretch really kicks in at the end of the week and possibly over the weekend too, although as you might expect the exact timing of rain/showers and amounts are by no means certain. The best bet right now for the the weekend is for clouds and limited sun with scattered showers at times. The best chance for rain appears to be Saturday, but there could still be rain at times on Sunday as well.
