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.

An area of light precipitation was moving across southern New
England early this morning. Some of the precipitation may fall as
light freezing rain or sleet or even some light snow near the New
Hampshire border. While the precipitation is light, it only takes
a trace amount of ice to cause slippery conditions.

Motorists should exercise caution overnight and be prepared for
some slick spots on roadways.

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

1/22 -  6:32 AM: Complex weather set up for today and Tuesday. A cold front is dropping south today and that will allow light snow showers to break out in Southern NH. As the colder air moves south these showers will pick up a bit in intensity later this afternoon. At the same time a low pressure system is tracking along the St. Lawrence River Valley and that will bring a warm front north. This will spawn a second low pressure system that will track east along the stalled front. As this warm front tries to push the cold front north tonight, precipitation will overrun the cold air at the surface and we'll see snow and freezing rain, as well as sleet for a time tonight. The NWS in Gray has issued a Winter Weather advisory for NH from 4PM today to 8AM Tuesday. Temps will rise into the 40s and 50s Tuesday morning and precipitation will change to all rain for Tuesday. A Flood Watch is up for Tuesday. Further north, the cold air will remain longer so more snow and icing will occur in these areas. The rain ends in the south here Tuesday evening. Sunny, but much colder weather follows as an Arctic front moves back into the region. Temps begin to moderate back towards seasonable average by Friday and Saturday. See all of the advisories here. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A cold front will drop south through northern New England today
with colder temperatures returning. Some light snow is expected
as well, with the front lifting back north as a warm front
tonight and Tuesday. As it does so, expect a period of freezing
rain for most areas before temperatures warm. As the low moves
away Tuesday evening a cold front will move across the area from
west to east with colder temperatures expected Wednesday through
Friday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Some light precipitation is expected today and tonight. Most of it
will be rain, but light icing is likely over interior high terrain
especially tonight into early Tuesday. A fast moving storm system
will bring a period of heavy rain to the region Tuesday along with
strong winds across SE New England. Blustery, dry and colder weather
follows Wednesday through Friday, then a warming trend next weekend.
A cold front may bring showers by next Sunday.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/...
Highlights...

* Blustery and colder Wed, and especially Thu/Fri, but dry
* Much milder next weekend with showers possible by Sunday

1/21 -  7:04 PM: Not much has changed in the forecast, except perhaps the precipitation will arrive soon, it will be a mixed mess, and there are Flood Watches now posted for NH. Winter weather advisories will be posted, probably for the northern and central parts of NH. A wintry mix will fall during Monday, changing back and forth from snow and sleet to freezing and rain here in the south. Precip will be very light so at the moment it doesn't look lie a big deal on Monday. By Monday night the precipitation picks up in intensity, but at the same time milder air is working into the region. Freezing precip will end at some point and just plain rain will fall on Tuesday as temps jump into the 50s here in the south. The system pulls away Tuesday night and pulls down colder air behind it. So mostly sunny and colder the rest of the week with no storms. Stay tuned. There are Hazardous Weather Outlooks for slippery conditions as this transition takes place and flood watch for NH.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
A stalled frontal boundary across southern New England will
gradually lift north as a warm front late tonight through Monday
night. Low pressure will track northeast out of the Great Lakes
and into the St Lawrence Valley on Tuesday and will drive a cold
front through the region late in the day. Low pressure will
continue northeast into the maritimes Tuesday night. High
pressure will slowly build in from the west Wednesday through
Friday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
Warm air aloft moves north tonight and brings clouds to Southern
New England. Some light precipitation is possible Monday. Most
of it will be rain, but some light icing is possible in the
interior. A fast moving storm system will bring a period of
heavy rain to the region Tuesday along with strong winds on the
coast. Blustery, dry and colder weather follows Wednesday
through Friday, before above normal temperatures likely return
next weekend.

LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/...
Highlights...

* Heavy rain Tue with a period of strong winds SE New Eng
* Some minor flooding issues are possible
* Dry/blustery and turning colder Wed and especially Thu/Fri

- 2018 - A year of decisions regarding the continuation of RichLefko.com.
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 ...

A winter weather advisory and a flood watch are posted for most of NH with the next system approaching to start the work week.

As a warm front moves in Monday with temperatures hovering around in the 30s, we'll see light snow/freezing rain showers on and off throughout the day. It does not look heavy, and there will be minimal accumulation (a light coating to a spotty inch or so through sunset), but the roads could get slick at times. Heavier snow/mix moves in around the evening commute, and that's when we could accumulate a little snow. A coating possible everywhere, while from the Lakes Region and north could get one to three inches.

Early Tuesday morning snow will then go over to a light mix as milder air moves in at mid and upper levels of the atmosphere. Any early mix on Tuesday morning should go over to rain through the day on Tuesday, especially in central and southern NH. Freezing rain should even change to plain rain in northern NH by Tuesday afternoon. Rain could even be heavy at times on Tuesday, and windy conditions are expected as well. Up to 1-1.5" of rainfall possible. That rainfall and snow melt could cause more ice jam movement...a Flood Watch has been posted through Tuesday along area rivers. The storm system moves out Tuesday night, setting up colder and breezy conditions for Wednesday.
