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:

9/22 -  6:53 PM: Welcome to the fall season. Jose is no more. The NHC has stopped giving updates on tropical rain storm Jose. He will continue to meander off the coast producing high surf (See the advisory) and he is still pin wheeling some showers into coastal regions as far east as Nashua. The northern cloud shield made its way well inland today. Conditions were breezy here in PB. At the moment we have forecasted a beautiful day on Saturday with lots of sunshine, highs in the low 80s with light winds. We turn hot and humid on Sunday (See the graphic above) with highs unseasonably warm in the mid and upper 80s. I guess it is possible we might break the record in Concord NH on Sunday. It stands at 90°. This warm weather is expected to continue into early next week, though one model suggest a back door cold front will invade the region by Monday. We'll see. A cold front will finally drop south by mid week, and that may well keep Maria away from New England. Stay tuned...
All Tropical system info has been updated. Former Tropical Storm Lee has regenerated back into a tropical depression.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
The remnants of Jose will meander well south of Cape Cod into
the weekend, gradually weakening with time. Meanwhile, a large
building ridge of high pressure will dominate the weather across
our region through the weekend and into early next week. We`ll
see a very nice stretch of dry and unseasonably warm weather
with temperatures running well above normal Saturday through at
least Monday. A front will remain nearly stationary north of
our region Wednesday, before sweeping south as a cold front on
Thursday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Jose will continue to weaken tonight as it very slowly drifts south,
but still bring periods of showers to eastern MA and RI. Low
clouds will gradually scour out from west to east during the day
Saturday and it will turn warm across interior southern New
England. Unseasonably warm weather is on tap Sunday into the
middle of next week, especially away from the coast.

LONG TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/...
Highlights...

* Return to summer warmth Sunday and Monday
* Showers possible by mid week
* Watching Maria, but latest NHC track keeps it offshore

9/22 -  7:00 AM: Fall begins this afternoon at 4:07PM. Enjoy the last few hours of summer today. Moisture continues to stream north from the remnants of Jose in the form of clouds. There were a few showers over SE MA and the Cape, while there were some showers well off to our NW along the International border. For us, we'll remain in the middle with lots of clouds and breezy conditions. Looks like Jose finally falls apart by Saturday while we will be under the influence of a ridge of high pressure. A very nice Saturday with highs around 80°, then a warm Sunday with highs in the mid 80s. This warm weather continue until mid next week when a cold front will cross the region. That front will probably keep Hurricane Maria away from the region. See all of the hurricane info here. Stay tuned.
Please review the hurricane statement here.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
The remnants of Jose will meander well south of Cape Cod into
the weekend, gradually weakening with time. It will produce some
gusty winds at times along the coast through today. Meanwhile,
a large building ridge of high pressure will dominate the
weather across our region through the weekend and into early
next week. We`ll see a very nice stretch of dry and unseasonably
warm weather with temperatures running well above normal
Saturday through at least Tuesday. A front will remain nearly
stationary north of our region Wednesday, before sweeping south
as a cold front on Thursday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Jose southeast of Nantucket will slowly drift back to the southwest
the next few days. This will maintain strong winds, rain and rough
seas today, which then diminish. Clearing skies will move in
from the west tonight and Saturday. Warmer weather arrives
Sunday and Monday, before a backdoor front brings cooler weather
and possibly a few showers by midweek.

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

* Return to summer warmth Sun/Mon
* Showers possible by mid week
* Watching Maria but latest NHC track keeps it offshore

- Site changes coming in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned.

Regional Weather Discussion ...

With what is left of Jose still spinning to our southeast, we’ll be looking at some changes as we get into the weekend.


On the northwestern extent of the cloud shield of Post-Tropical Cyclone Jose could be a quick passing shower or two in southeastern NH today, otherwise it will be a blend of sunshine and high clouds with a northeasterly breeze keeping it very comfortable. Highs will range from the upper 60s to near 70° at the coastline to mid 70s up north.

As the breeze lightens tonight, temps will fall into the low and mid 50s with some fog possible overnight.

Any early clouds Saturday will give way to sunshine, not only for Saturday afternoon…but until further notice. There will be a warming trend to go with it…highs Saturday will be from the upper 70s to mid 80s, but then go into the 80s statewide Sunday through at least Tuesday with some humidity creeping back in.

Major hurricane Maria continues to move northwest, east of the Bahamas. The official National Hurricane Center forecast track continues to bring it north-northwest over the weekend. Eventually Maria will be located between Bermuda and North Carolina next Tuesday. Stay tuned for updates on her track throughout the weekend.

These "discussions" come from the National Weather Service, WMUR TV Manchester NH, or me.
