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.

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.

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.

...National Weather Service Cold Water Safety Message...

* Warm air temperatures ranging from the 70s in the mountains to
the lower to mid 80s in southern Maine and New Hampshire may
cause people to underestimate the dangers of the cold water
today. Water temperatures on lakes and rivers are only in the
40s to lower 50s.

* The cold water temperatures can quickly cause hypothermia to
anyone immersed in the water. According to the Maine Warden
Service, when the water temperature is below 60 degrees, the
average submerged person could lose dexterity within minutes and
be unable to accomplish simple tasks. Anyone on small boats,
canoes or kayaks should plan accordingly this weekend and use
extreme caution to avoid this threat. Paddle smart from the
start and always wear your life jacket!

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

5/26 -  7:27 PM:  High pressure builds into the region tonight. A very nice Memorial Day on tap for Monday. We'll have a continuation of the active weather pattern we've been in...seems like...forever. A old front will pass later in the day on Monday with just some clouds. Monday looks like the last dry day until next Friday with bouts of showers as storm cross to our south and stall near New England. There is quite a heat wave going on (see in the panels above) in the SE USA. Cold front dropping south will keep this heat from reaching us here in New England. Updated Special Weather Statement.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will build in from the west overnight as a weak
cold front approaches from the north. The front will drop south
through the region on Monday with little more than passing
clouds. High pressure will build over the area Monday night and
will shift offshore on Tuesday. Weak low pressure will pass out
to sea south of New England Tuesday night and Wednesday. A warm
front will approach from the southwest Wednesday night and will
stall south of the region on Thursday. A cold front will
approach from the west Thursday night and will push east
through the region on Friday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Isolated showers in and around Southern New England but even
these should diminish this evening. A cold front swings across
the region early tonight. High pressure then builds over New
England for Monday and Monday night with dry, seasonable
weather. A few weak lows will move along a wavering front
across the region late Tuesday into Thursday, bringing the
threat for showers. Milder temperatures move in during Thursday
ahead of an approaching cold front, with the threat for more
showers and isolated thunderstorms. The front exits early
Friday, with dry and seasonable conditions to start next
weekend.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...

Highlights...

* Turning cooler Tuesday with rain showers
* A front lingers across the region Wed and Thu with unsettled
conditions and warming temperatures
* Cold front approaches Thu/Thu night bringing mild temperatureswith
showers and isolated thunderstorms
* Rain exits Friday, then mainly dry, seasonable conditions early
next weekend

5/26 -  9:17 AM:  Warm and windy today. Sunny but a cold front will cross the region later today and that may cause an isolated pop up thunderstorm . Best chance is in central NH to eastern Maine and mid coast Maine. I can't rule out a storm in Peterborough, NH later this afternoon. Clearing again after any storms tonight and that sets the stage for a very nice Memorial Day with mild temps in the mid 70s and bright sunny skies. The unsettled pattern continue into next week with showers returning by Tuesday. Updated Special Weather Statement.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A cold front will move through the region today with a chance of
thunderstorms, mainly across northern and eastern portions of
the forecast area. A secondary cold front will drop south
through the region on Monday. High pressure will build in from
the west Monday night. A warm front will approach from the
southwest Tuesday night and will move north into the region on
Wednesday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A taste of summertime heat today with a low risk for an
isolated late afternoon thunderstorm south of the Pike. A cold
front moves south of the coast tonight followed by high pressure
building in through Monday, then shifting off the coast early
Tuesday. A few weak lows will move along a wavering front across
the region late Tuesday into Thursday, bringing the threat for
showers. Milder temperatures move in during Thursday ahead of an
approaching cold front, with the threat for more showers and
isolated thunderstorms. The front exits during Friday, with dry
and seasonable conditions to start next weekend.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/...

Highlights...

* Mainly dry conditions Monday night
* Wavering front lingers Tuesday through Wednesday night with
areas of showers and patchy nighttime fog
* Cold front approaches Thu/Thu night bringing mild
temperatures with showers and isolated thunderstorms
* Rain exits Friday, then mainly dry, seasonable conditions
early next weekend

...Cool for the West and Hot for the Southeast with more storms across the
Plains...

Weather conditions will continue to remain quite unsettled across the
north-central U.S. going into the beginning of the week, with additional
heavy rain and severe storms expected. This is in response to an
anomalous upper level trough situated over the Intermountain West and a
large upper level ridge anchored over the southeastern U.S.

The next organized surface low develops across the western High Plains
Sunday night and energizes the atmosphere for another organized round of
strong to severe storms from the Texas Panhandle to southern Minnesota.
The flash flooding threat will continue to exist across much of this same
general area, with inundating rainfall over the past few days making the
ground quite saturated and the prospects for an additional 1 to 2+ inches
of rain only aggravating the ongoing flooding situation. The potent upper
level low originating from the West coast on Sunday is expected to produce
another surface low over the central plains by Tuesday morning. The
heaviest rainfall from this storm system will likely be a little farther
north from eastern Wyoming to the Upper Midwest.

There will be a dichotomy of temperature anomalies across the U.S. through
Memorial Day. Expect readings to be below normal across the northern
plains, and also for the Intermountain West and Desert Southwest. With
the anomalous upper level low tracking southward along the West Coast and
then the Four Corners region by Monday night, temperatures will be rather
pleasant across the normally hot lower elevations of the Desert Southwest,
and quite cool across the higher elevations. Across the Deep South and
the Carolinas, record high temperatures will continue to be possible for
the remainder of the Memorial Day weekend, with highs soaring well into
the 90s and lower 100s for some areas, perhaps challenging a few records
for the month of May!
