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:

8/21 - 6:20 AM: Expect a sunny, warmer day today with increasing humidity. We'll lose the sun for a bit as the moon crosses this afternoon. See the timing link at the top of the page. We'll remain clear and muggy tonight into Tuesday. Tuesday will be the warmest day over the next seven. A cold front approaches by afternoon with a chance for showers into Tuesday evening. There may be some thunderstorms. The cold front moves offshore by Wednesday and we'll see a return to sunny day, and clear cooler nights as the humidity is swept offshore. The temps after Wednesday are in line with normal s highs for this time of year, but in the mountains there will be a fall-feel by the weekend. We are only a month away from the end of summer.
From yesterdays update:
The Solar Eclipse begins here in NH about 1:27 PM , with the maximum at 2:44PM. It's all over by 3:57 PM. Watch this video. Remember, we'll only have a partial eclipse from our location, and remember not to look directly at the eclipse. The next total Solar Eclipse viewable from New England will be April 8, 2024. I hope we are all here to see it.
Tuesday looks hot and humid with a cold front pressing south from the NW. Storms are likely. This cold front will cross the region Tuesday night/Wednesday. Drier, less humid, sunny weather is excepted to end the week. Still watching the tropics.

SYNOPSIS... NH/ME
High pressure will build to the south of the region through tonight before sliding to the east on Tuesday. A cold front will move across the region Tuesday night and early Wednesday. High pressure and drier air follows the front Wednesday night through Friday.

SYNOPSIS... MA
High pressure moves offshore today. Southwest winds bring warm humid air Tuesday night, which will feed developing showers and thunderstorms. The wet weather will continue into Wednesday, until a cold front sweeps across Southern New England. High pressure brings dry weather Thursday through Sunday.

8/20 -  6:08 PM: That was a nice break. Probably the longest break I have taken in the 15+ years I've been doing this. I'm back so lets get to the weather: High pressure builds into the region from Pennsylvania tonight. Warmer, more humid air will begin moving into the region during Monday. Should be good Eclipse viewing weather. The Solar Eclipse begins here in NH about 1:27 PM , with the maximum at 2:44PM. It's all over by 3:57 PM. Watch this video. Remember, we'll only have a partial eclipse from our location, and remember not to look directly at the eclipse. The next total Solar Eclipse viewable from New England will be April 8, 2024. I hope we are all here to see it.
Tuesday looks hot and humid with a cold front pressing south from the NW. Storms are likely. This cold front will cross the region Tuesday night/Wednesday. Drier, less humid, sunny weather is excepted to end the week. Still watching the tropics.

Congratulations to Donna Pratt of Nashua NH who became out 180,000th visitor! Thanks Donna.

OWC - Back to School Sales - 08/17/2017

Regional Weather Discussion ...

Easy to call today "partly sunny" with the partial solar eclipse over New Hampshire this afternoon…but we'll see almost all sunshine out of that 1:30-4pm timeframe.

It will turn warmer and a bit more humid today with highs mainly in the 80s on a light westerly breeze. Fair skies will continue tonight (some valley fog) with lows in the low to mid 60s. The warmest/most humid day for the week will be Tuesday. Highs will climb into the 80s to lower 90s with hazy sunshine.

A front will approach from the west with some late day and evening thunderstorms. That will be the leading edge of cooler, drier air that will start to work in on Wednesday. A beautiful stretch of sunny, pleasantly warm days and cooler nights will start Thursday and likely last through the weekend.

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