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:

11/27 - 5:24 PM: Another low pressure will develop off the North Carolina coast tonight, then track northeast. This system is expected to pass offshore and bring a period of light snow tonight. However, the track is really critical. 25 miles further offshore and we'll see no snow, closer more snow. So the NWS has issues a Winter Weather Advisory for coastal MA where 2" to 4" of snow are possible. Further inland there is just a Hazardous Weather Outlook for 1" to as much as 3". The heavier amounts fro Nashua east. Here in PB, and 1" or 2" is possible with an inch out in Keene. This chance runs into Friday morning. Slippery travel tonight, due to black ice, and tomorrow morning seems likely.. Very cold Friday night in the teens. Some partial sunshine on Saturday. Next system brings some sleet and freezing rain Saturday night.
SYNOPSIS...
SCATTERED LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS/FLURRIES POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON.
TONIGHT...A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE MAY PRODUCE ACCUMULATING SNOW
ACROSS EASTERN MA INCLUDING THE BOSTON AREA. HIGH PRESSURE MOVES
OVER NEW ENGLAND FRIDAY AND SHIFTS OFFSHORE OVER THE WEEKEND. A
WARM FRONT MOVES ACROSS THE REGION LATE SATURDAY NIGHT AND EARLY
SUNDAY. A COLD FRONT THEN SWINGS THROUGH NEW ENGLAND MONDAY.
ANOTHER WARM FRONT/COLD FRONT COMBINATION WILL MOVE THROUGH THE
REGION WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

11/27 - 9:19 AM: Happy Thanksgiving! We have some sunny breaks here in PB this morning. Strong low pressure system is pulling away from the region this morning. Chilly morning, only 28° here in PB. Still have to go clear the snow. An interesting set up for today and tonight. Without going into the complicated description of fronts and Norlun trofs, there is a possibility of another 1" to 3" across the region tonight with much more possible in SE MA. This will be a close call, tracking 25 miles south, this front would remain offshore and so would any heavy snow. So pay attention to later today update. Quite and cold to start Saturday but snow and sleet are possible Saturday night. Milder, partly sunny Sunday. Stay tuned!!
SYNOPSIS...
STRONG LOW PRESSURE OVER NOVA SCOTIA WILL CONTINUE MOVING AWAY
FROM NEW ENGLAND TODAY. HOWEVER SCATTERED LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS OR
FLURRIES WILL DEVELOP LATER THIS MORNING AND AFTERNOON ACROSS THE
REGION. A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE MAY PRODUCE ACCUMULATING SNOW
ACROSS EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS INCLUDING THE BOSTON AREA LATE
TONIGHT INTO FRIDAY. ELSEWHERE JUST LIGHT SNOW OR FLURRIES ARE
EXPECTED. DRY BUT COLD WEATHER FOLLOWS FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY.
ANOTHER PERIOD OF LIGHT SNOW OR FLURRIES IS POSSIBLE SATURDAY
NIGHT. DRY AND MILDER WEATHER ARRIVES SUNDAY AND INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK.

11/26 - 8:36 PM: We've been running on a generator here in Peterborough since about 2PM. Power was restored about an hour ago. Thank goodness! We thought we might have to wait to have a Thanksgiving! The snow is falling heavy here and it continues to pile up. I just reported 13" of snow to the NWS but there are 17" spots out there. The snow should begin to diminish before midnight form south to north as the coastal storm moves off to the east. Improving conditions on Thanksgiving day with cloudy skies and snow showers. Cold. Lights continue to flash here so I will update in the morning. If we have power. All warnings and advisories have been updated.
SYNOPSIS...
A DEVELOPING COASTAL STORM WILL PASS SOUTH AND EAST OF NANTUCKET
EARLY TONIGHT... THEN QUICKLY MOVE OFF TOWARD NOVA SCOTIA
OVERNIGHT. THE VARIETY OF WEATHER IMPACTS FROM THIS STORM WILL
DIMINISH OVERNIGHT...WITH WEATHER CONDITIONS IMPROVING FOR
THANKSGIVING DAY. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER NEW ENGLAND FRIDAY AND
SHIFTS OFFSHORE OVER THE WEEKEND. A WARM FRONT MOVES ACROSS THE
REGION SATURDAY NIGHT. A COLD FRONT THEN SWINGS THROUGH NEW
ENGLAND LATE SUNDAY NIGHT OR MONDAY. ANOTHER WARM FRONT APPROACHES
NEXT WEDNESDAY.

IMPACTS...

* HEAVY SNOW WESTERN AND CENTRAL MA INTO SOUTHERN NH
* STRONG WINDS SOUTHEAST MA AND SOUTHERN RI
* HEAVY RAIN AND MINOR POOR DRAINAGE/URBAN FLOODING MUCH OF RI AND
