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:

5/23 -  5:41 AM: A brief update this morning: A cold front drops south today. Today will be mostly sunny and mild with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s. Thursday will be mostly sunny and a bit cooler with highs only in the 70s as a warm front approaches. This front will cross by Thursday night, bringing us a warm and sunny Friday with highs in the 80s. That warm front drops south as a cold front during Saturday and that may bring a round of showers and storms later Saturday. I am still trying to work out Sunday and Memorial Day, so check back.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A cold front will drop south across the area today producing
scattered showers and thunderstorms across northern and
eastern portions of the forecast area. High pressure will build
into the region Thursday and Friday with very warm weather
expected. A backdoor cold front drops into the region this
weekend and will likely provide for some unsettled weather.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Isolated showers linger this morning, with a second shot late
today into this evening. Expect dry and warming weather Thursday
and Friday. Saturday will also be warm, just before a cold
front sweeps south across Southern New England generating a few
showers and scattered thunderstorms. Although it will not be a
washout, the potential for showers will linger through the
remainder of the Memorial Day weekend.

5/22 -  6:32 PM: Remaining showers will head offshore tonight and skies will turn partly cloudy. On Wednesday a cold front drops south but only brings a chance of showers to the mountains. Wednesday will be mostly sunny and mild with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s. Thursday will be mostly sunny and a bit cooler with highs only in the 70s as a warm front approaches. This front will cross by Thursday night, bringing us a warm and sunny Friday with highs in the 80s. That warm front drops south as a cold front during Saturday and that may bring a round of showers and storms later Saturday. I am still trying to work out Sunday and Memorial Day, so check back.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Showers will end tonight as weak low pressure and an associated
frontal system slide offshore. A cold front will drop south
across the area on Wednesday producing scattered showers and a
few thunderstorms across northern and mountain sections. High
pressure will build into the region Thursday. The next weather
maker nears the northeast for the weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Rain showers will focus themselves to the south of the Massachusetts
turnpike this evening before moving offshore...but a few left
over showers will remain possible overnight ahead of a cold
front. Mainly dry weather with warm afternoons are anticipated
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Another cold front will drop
south and bring a chance for a period of unsettled weather
during the holiday weekend...but not expecting a washout.

- 2018 - A year of decisions regarding the continuation of RichLefko.com. I need sponsors!
RichLefko.com needs two new annual sponsors to stay on the web and deliver the weather alerts you need, when you need them. E-mail alerts add up to one of the largest costs at RichLefko.com. I also need to update this website to better handle cell phones, and other portable electronics. I am willing to put in the time and effort, but I need some help to osffset the cost of e-mail, web hosting, and software.
In order to accomplish this I need two additional sponsors to add to the couple I already have. In the past I had several sponsors who have now retired their businesses.
Contact me if you, or someone you know, has a small business and would like to support the continuation of RichLefko.com. It isn't expensive. I do accept donations as well.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

The bright and warm weather returns to round out the week, but changes are lurking as the holiday weekend approaches.

After any low clouds/fog fade early in the day, expect a good deal of sunshine today. It will be a breezy and warmer day with highs in the upper 60s/70 far north to low 80s south. There is the chance of a passing shower or t-shower in the Great North Woods in the afternoon.

Thursday and Friday will feature lots of sunshine. Temps will top off in the mid 60s to mid 70s (coolest north and coast) on Thursday and then warm into the upper 70s to mid 80s on Friday.

The start of the holiday weekend will be warmest of the three days with a blend of sun and clouds. While a few scattered showers are possible at any time in northern NH, southern areas will likely be dry through the morning with a passing shower or thunderstorm possible in the afternoon. Lower temps (60s to lower 70s) along with a few shower chances are possible for the rest of the holiday weekend.

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