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.

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.

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:

6/23 -  6:18 PM: A warm front will lift through the region tonight. That will bring a few more showers. Milder on Sunday with a better chance for showers and thunderstorms, changing to a steady rain by evening. That tapers off Monday morning with some sunshine later in the day. Pleasant through midweek, and then real summer weather arrives by late week with heat and humidity building into the region. See the pattern graphic for late week the panels above. Heat advisories are likely.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Warm front lifts northwards across the region overnight bringing
scattered showers. Thunderstorms may develop across southern New
Hampshire Sunday with more widespread rain Sunday night as low
pressure crosses the area. High pressure builds east out of the
Great Lakes on Tuesday and Wednesday. A broad trough swings
cross the Northeast on Thursday with showers possible. Then much
warmer air builds in for the rest of the week.

SYNOPSIS...MA
A warm front will slowly shift north, bringing showers and a
few thunderstorms this afternoon and tonight. Low pressure from
the Great Lakes moves across New England Sunday and will bring
showers and a few thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon
and evening. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible
Monday. Sunny and seasonable weather Tuesday into Wednesday with
high pressure in control. After some showers and thunderstorms
Wednesday night and Thursday, summer heat and humidity will
return Friday and Saturday as this high moves east of the
region.
Although the forecast does not go beyond Saturday, there are
signals that this could be the beginnings of a prolonged heat
wave, with the heat and humidity possibly lasting well into the
first week of July.

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
Highlights...

* Seasonable temperatures through Thurs.with chance of showers
Monday and Wed. night/Thurs.
* Prolonged heat wave may begin next weekend...

There will be dry periods this morning with heavier showers and a chance of thunderstorms tonight and Sunday. Cool today but warmer, and more humid on Sunday. These systems depart during Monday with some clearing later. More wet weather by midweek, then a transition to a more summer type pattern by the end of the week with heat and humidity.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
Low pressure approaches from the southwest today with the
potential for showers which will continue into Monday. High
pressure then builds in later Monday, bringing dry conditions
into midweek next week along with a moderating trend in
temperatures.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure will slowly push east of the region this morning.
Low pressure and an associated warm front will slowly shift

thunderstorms during Sunday. The activity may linger into
Monday. Mainly dry weather with seasonable temperatures
anticipated Tuesday and Wednesday with a ridge of high pressure
in control. Summer heat and humidity should return by the end of

- 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 ...

Weather across the nation today:

Short Range Forecast Discussion
NWS Weather Prediction Center College Park MD
402 AM EDT Sat Jun 23 2018

Valid 12Z Sat Jun 23 2018 - 12Z Mon Jun 25 2018

...Enhanced risk for severe thunderstorms across the Central Plains into
northern Oklahoma on Sunday...

...Increasing threat for flash flooding over the Central Plains on
Sunday...

...Above average temperatures expected along the West Coast into the
Desert Southwest this weekend...

...Fire weather concerns across areas of the Four Corners back into
northern California..

While a prominent upper low across the Ohio Valley considerably weakens,
the focus will shift back to an impressive array of disturbances currently
sweeping across the Pacific Northwest. Such a conglomerate of energy
should organize further resulting in a well established upper trough
crossing the Central Rockies by Sunday morning. Widespread convection
should erupt within the moist and unstable air mass entrenched over the
Central Plains. The latest outlook from the Storm Prediction Center
presents an Enhanced Risk for severe thunderstorms over much of Kansas
down into the northern fringe of Oklahoma. Primary hazards should be large
hail and damaging winds although a few tornadoes will also be possible. In
addition to the threat for severe convection, flash flooding may also pose
issues, particularly over much of Kansas where 2 to 4 inches of rainfall
is expected during a 24-hour period ending Monday morning. Of course,
isolated pockets of heavier amounts are likely where thunderstorms either
stall or repeat over similar locations.

Before this primary event takes shape, it will prove to remain active over
a couple other sectors of the country on Saturday. First, a wavy frontal
zone encompassing eastern Oklahoma through the Ozarks and into the
Tennessee River valley will remain an impetus for an organized band of
convection. A Slight Risk for severe thunderstorms extends over much of
this boundary which covers locations from north-central Texas eastward
into the Atlanta metro area. Given the amount of moisture intercepting
this front, some hydrologic issues may unfold where higher rainfall
amounts are observed. Elsewhere, ahead of a weakening upper low across the
Ohio Valley, unsettled conditions will continue to affect much of the
northeastern U.S. this weekend.

Persistent upper ridging across the southwestern U.S. will promote rather
hot conditions over the region the next couple of days. This should
initially focus from southern Nevada west-northward into central/northern
California with eventual expansion into the Pacific Northwest by Sunday.
Currently, excessive heat warnings and heat advisories span these former
regions as expected high temperatures sit around 10 degrees above
climatology. As usual, the most extreme heat will concentrate over Death
Valley, California where a high of 120 degrees is expected on Saturday. In
addition to the widespread heat, a wildfire concern is in place across
southern Nevada as well as over patches of northern California. The most
pronounced threat should be across southern Utah and northern Arizona
where a Critical Risk for wildfire production is advertised by the Storm
Prediction Center. This tends to be collocated with where extreme drought
conditions have remained a major concern.

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