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:

This begins Friday 8/23: To my many followers: Please note. I will be migrating this site, and all of my data, to a new Mac computer over the next several weeks. This is going to be a long and slow process since I have been using my trusty Mac Pro for the last ten years to give you uninterrupted weather forecasts. Moving is not going to be easy. My weather instrument feed will be shut down during this period. Once that is complete, I will go back to working on the updated site, which I know you will all love. So please bear with me.... Rich

8/24 -  6:55 PM: More clouds tonight, so temps won't drop as low as last night, still cool in the mid 50s. A mostly sunny Sunday, breezy, as high pressure dominates the pattern well into early next week. Highs on Sunday in the low to mid 70s, with lows in the mid and upper 40s under clear skies. Monday looks sunny and seasonable with highs in the low to mid 70s. Next chance for rain, Wednesday night.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure over the Great Lakes will build into New England
this weekend and remain overhead into early next week. This will
provide dry weather and seasonably cool temperatures. A frontal
system will approach the region by the middle or latter
portions of next week bringing our next chance of showers.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure will contribute to low clouds and light showers
for tonight into Sunday, especially across southeast New
England. High pressure lingers into midweek, with seasonable
and dry conditions to continue. Still have an eye on the
tropics at this time, with potential high surf and dangerous rip
currents for the Atlantic-exposed shoreline of New England.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...

Highlights...

* Below normal temperatures early next week, especially across
eastern Massachusetts into Rhode Island
* Onshore winds will bring spotty light rain or showers at
times into mid week
* Temperatures return to near normal levels around mid week,
becoming warmer than normal by Friday
* Another chance for showers late Wednesday through Thursday

8/24 -  6:38 AM:  Pretty chilly out there with current temps at 46.7° here in Peterborough, NH. Quiet weather. Mostly sunny and seasonably mild today. Increasing clouds due to that offshore low today, but no precipitation is expected. Not quite as cool tonight with the cloud cover. Nice into the early week. I am off to the fishing hole....

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will dominate the weather across the northeast
through Tuesday. Temperatures will be slightly below normal
through the period with a slight warm up by Tuesday. A slow
moving cold front will bring a period of wet weather for
late Wednesday into Thursday as low pressure moves well offshore
of New England.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure from the Great Lakes will move across Eastern
Canada to the Maritimes. This high will maintain dry conditions
over much of the region today, then bring low clouds, showers
and drizzle Sunday, especially across Eastern Massachusetts and
Rhode Island. The high lingers over the Maritimes for Monday and
Tuesday with dry conditions and seasonably mild temperatures
for Southern New England. A potential tropical system may
develop, tracking from the Bahamas to well south of New England
around the middle of next week.

LONG TERM /SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...

Highlights...

* Cooler than normal temperatures early next week especially
across eastern Massachusetts into Rhode Island
* Onshore winds will bring spotty light rain or showers at
times into mid week
* Temperatures return to near normal levels around mid week,
becoming warmer than normal by Friday
* Another chance for showers late Wednesday through Thursday

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Manchester NH —

We’re off to a quiet and comfortable start this morning with a large ridge of high pressure setting up over Southern Ontario and Québec.

This ridge will slowly drift eastward this weekend while an upper level low slowly pinwheels across the area. This will lead to some degree of cloudiness across the north country and the mountains – otherwise, with the exception of some fair-weather cloudiness, we should be in great shape looking ahead to both days this weekend.

The ridge will contract a bit by Monday – but will remain over Northern New England and will continue to generate very comfortable and dry conditions.

The next frontal boundary in the queue will arrive as we look ahead to Thursday – with the risk of some showers Wednesday night into Thursday. Temps will rise a bit by the middle of the week – and we’ll see humidity values jump a bit as the flow becomes more southwesterly.

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