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.

Weather Permitting: Iceland
(Best viewed in full screen)

 

Author: "In September, my wife and I packed up our photo gear and headed to Iceland for 10 days to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. Of the 10 days we were there, it rained for 7 days, with cloud cover for 8 days. We set out in the cold, wind and rain to capture as much of Iceland as we could. As the weather made shooting difficult, "Weather permitting" quickly became the theme of our trip.
Even with the weather, there was nothing but awe for Iceland. It's an amazing place. Every 5 minutes we'd come across new terrain, textures, and colors. This was my effort at trying to capture all of the unique landscapes that Iceland has to offer.
After a few non-serious attempts playing around with a homemade time-lapse dolly, this is my first complete time-lapse video, which includes a mix of time-lapse, long exposure, and video footage."

Rich's Local Weather Discussion:

Please note: Tonight we move back to the usual schedule.

4/30 -  6:08 PM: I have been in North and South Carolina this past week. It was HOT down there with highs in the mid and upper 80s for most days. Today I am cold having returned to NH. Clouds were on the increase as I flew in and out of Baltimore today, and clouds were on the increase here in NH this afternoon. As high pressure shifts offshore tonight, a low pressure area will approach from the west. This low will slowly move across the region bringing some much needed rainfall on Sunday and Monday. An unsettled week ahead with bouts of rain early in the week and again on Thursday. Cool temps Sunday and Monday with closer to normal (low to mid 60s) by midweek.

SYNOPSIS...NH/ME
HIGH PRESSURE WILL SHIFT OFFSHORE TONIGHT. LOW PRESSURE WILL
APPROACH FROM THE WEST ON SUNDAY AND WILL SLOWLY CROSS NEW ENGLAND
SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY. LOW PRESSURE WILL PUSH EAST INTO THE
MARITIMES MONDAY NIGHT. WEAK HIGH PRESSURE WILL PREVAIL OVER THE
AREA ON TUESDAY. ANOTHER BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WILL APPROACH
FROM THE WEST ON WEDNESDAY AND WILL MEANDER OVER THE NORTHEAST
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.

SYNOPSIS...MA
HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE REGION TONIGHT WILL MOVE OFF TO THE EAST
SUNDAY MORNING. LOW PRESSURE MOVING UP THE OHIO VALLEY WILL BRING
TWO BURSTS OF RAIN TO SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND...ONE ON SUNDAY
AFTERNOON/EVENING AND THE SECOND ON MONDAY. SHOWER CHANCES
CONTINUE ACROSS THE SOUTH COAST ON TUESDAY BEFORE A BRIEF DRYING
TREND ON WEDNESDAY. EXPECT MORE UNSETTLED WEATHER FOR LATE NEXT

OWC Weekender Specials - 4/29/2016

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Skies gradually cloud up Saturday night. Temperatures fall into the 30s north to 40s south.

Sunday morning we'll start with thickening clouds, then rain showers move in midday and through the afternoon. It will be widespread light to moderate rain passing through. High temperatures in the 50s.

The damp and cooler weather will stick around into Monday. Monday morning we'll have scattered showers or drizzle, then steady and heavier rain moves through in the afternoon and evening. It will feel cool with highs in the upper 40s to near 50.

Back to sunshine and milder temperatures by Tuesday. Highs then in the low 60s.

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