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.

10/21 -  6:10 PM: As high pressure moves off to the east starting tonight. Clouds will slowly begin to move into the region. Still mostly sunny on Sunday but increasing clouds by Monday. Mild into Monday with highs in the 70s Sunday and around 70° on Monday as more clouds dim the sun. Slow moving cold front from the Midwest arrive by Tuesday brining a period of rain, through Wednesday and possibly into Thursday. Waves of low pressure will ride along the stalled front. Looks like an unsettled weather pattern with sunshine returning next Friday. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will gradually shift off to the east tonight and
and Monday. A slow moving cold front will approach from the
west Monday night and Tuesday and will stall over the region
Tuesday night. Several waves of low pressure will ride north
along this boundary through Thursday as the front pushes east.
High pressure will build in from the southwest on Friday.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure south of New England will provide very warm and dry
weather into Monday. The exception will be across northeast
Massachusetts Sunday where a backdoor cold front will yield cooler
temperatures but still above normal. A cold front with possibly
waves of low pressure will bring gusty showers to the area Tuesday
afternoon into Wednesday. Drier and seasonably cool weather is
expected behind the front for late in the week.

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

* Heavy showers and gusty winds are possible ahead of a cold front
Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday

10/21 -  9:03 AM: A gorgeous fall day ahead. Bright sunshine, mild temps in the low 70s, and light winds. What more could you ask for? Cool tonight and a bit milder on Sunday with highs in the mid 70s, but there will be more clouds. Looking ahead: Mild again on Monday, dry and partly sunny. A slow moving cold front will approach the region by Tuesday brining some much needed rain to the region. So cooler, stormy through at least mid week. Stay tuned.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
High pressure will shift offshore today allowing for another
warming trend to commence. High pressure will hold off the
coast through Sunday as a weak warm front holds steady across
southern New England on Sunday. A slow moving cold front will
approach from the west on Monday and will move across New
England Tuesday night and Wednesday. Low pressure will then
develop along this front and move into the Gulf of Maine
Thursday. Fair weather should move in over the weekend.

SYNOPSIS...MA
High pressure centered over the Eastern USA will move offshore
this weekend, bringing warm, dry weather to our region. A cold
front with possibly waves of low pressure will bring showers to
the area Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday. Drier and cooler
weather is expected for late in the week.

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

* Heavy showers and gusty winds are possible ahead of a cold front
Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday

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

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Across the nation today:

Severe Storms; Fire Danger; and Strong Pacific Storms

More strong storms on tap for the Pacific Northwest this weekend. Heavy rains could produce flooding and mudslides. Saturday, a cold front moving into the central U.S. will bring potential for severe thunderstorms containing damaging winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes; and localized flooding potential. Dry winds in southwestern California will keep fire weather threats high.

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