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.

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

1/23 -  5:57 PM: Not much has changed in the forecast. The NWS has issued a winter weather advisory for Cheshire County NH, and wind, and flood watches elsewhere. You can find all of these links here. The only confusing advisory is Cheshire county NH. Current conditions there are 37° with rain falling? If you live in Cheshire and you are seeing any frozen roadways, let me know. Otherwise I am baffled. Warmer air and rain, heavy at times, moves in later tonight. The winds will also be gusting, but the strongest winds will be along the coasts, especially SE MA, where a high wind warning is in effect. A windy, mild, rainy day for Thursday, but the storm in Quebec will continue tracking east and that will drag a cold front our way. That front arrives Thursday night withy any rain changing to snow as the system departs. At the moment, not expecting any accumulation. Mostly sunny and colder on Friday, but not like Monday/s cold. I will be populating the three day forecast grid above with the weekend outlook tomorrow morning and that will be followed by the every Thursday evening weekend outlook e-mail blast. Please sign up below.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
The low will drag a trailing cold front across the area on
Thursday as it passes by to our north and west. Weak low
pressure will approach from the west Friday, before crossing the
region Friday night. A weak ridge of high pressure will pass
over the region Saturday. Low pressure will track through
southeastern Canada Sunday, before a cold front sweeps across
the region Monday. High pressure will follow on Tuesday. Yet
another area of low pressure will pass by to our north and west
Tuesday night into early Wednesday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
The threat for showers will increase from west to east tonight,
particularly toward daybreak Thursday. Heavy rain on Thursday will
bring the potential for some flooding, strong to damaging wind
gusts, along with unseasonably mild temperatures. Mainly dry
and more seasonable temperatures follow on Friday, then
turning colder Saturday. Snow showers are possible
Sunday then another frontal system may impact the region
Tuesday.

Highlights ...

- Cold, dry conditions through late week
- Watching potential outcomes Sunday along an Arctic front
- Another onset wintry weather, follow-up soaker Tue-Wed
- Potential late week Arctic blast

1/23 - 6:56 AM: The NWS has issued a winter weather advisory for Cheshire County NH, and wind, and flood watches elsewhere. You can find all of these links here. Storm system currently over Michigan will track north of our region, but pull warmer air up from the SE ahead of a cold front it is dragging across areas to the south of the main low. Milder air (40s and 50s) will stream north ahead of the cold front with rain, some heavy, falling in this area. It has been so cold the past couple of days that low level cold air in places like Cheshire county NH and into central NH may see some snow or freezing rain before the air mass warms to ground level. So be careful today. All areas warm up tonight, some will be 50 degrees warmer than Monday. Rain and wind tonight through the day light hours of Thursday. Then the cold front sweeps east pushing the rain offshore, and allowing colder air to return. This air is cold, but not as cold as the last few days. There may be some pockets of freezing precip as the system pulls away Thursday night. Sunny, colder on Friday.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure over the Great Lakes will pull a warm front north
across the region today. The low will drag a trailing cold front
across the area on Thursday as it passes to our north. A secondary
cold front will drop south through the region on Friday. Weak
low pressure will approach from the west Friday night and will
cross the region on Saturday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Low pressure lifting across the Great Lakes into Quebec will
result in considerably milder temperatures today. The risk for
showers will increase tonight and reach maximum strength on
Thursday. Heavy rainfall and possible flooding, strong coastal
winds and unseasonably mild temperatures are expected on
Thursday. Mainly dry and more seasonable temperatures follow on
Friday, then turning colder Saturday. Snow showers are possible
Sunday then another frontal system may impact the region
Tuesday.

LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/...
Highlights...

* Mainly dry and turning colder Fri into Sat
* Snow showers possible Sunday
* Another round of snow/rain showers possible mid week

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Manchester NH:

The warming trend looks to continue for the next few days as the next system approaches from the west.

We'll see occasional snow showers up north today and a thickening of clouds elsewhere, with a few mixed or rain showers later in the afternoon. Temps will climb to near 30 far north to around 40 far south with a light southerly breeze.

Some rain and pockets of freezing rain are likely tonight, some slick spots are possible in the northern half of NH overnight. This will be followed by a milder rain (highs in the 40s for most, a few low 50s) on Thursday.

It will dry out and cool down with brisk winds on Friday with a dry and cold Saturday to follow (highs between 14-28°.) Sunday looks to feature early sun to clouds with a chance of a few scattered PM snow showers.

These "discussions" are from the NWS, or WMUR Manchester NH, or me.
