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.

Winter is coming and you WANT to be on this list.

10/31 - 5:58 PM: A spooky nigh ahead. Dry until midnight with showers after 1AM. Werewolves and vampires will be out after 7PM. Strong storm is intensifying as it moves north, but the track will keep most of the moisture east and offshore. However, we will get up to 1/2" rain here in PB with higher amounts as you go east. The winds will increase into Saturday night with High Wind Warnings and watches in eastern/coastal areas. Even here in PB the wind could gust to 45 MPH! Expect scattered power outages and wind damage. Expect the current wind advisories to expand to our region for Sunday. Very cold, December like feel on Sunday with the highs winds bringing in cold air from the NW. It will feel like late December. As this all winds down Sunday morning the rain will change to snow. A coating to flurries south, but it is possible that 1" to 2" could accumulate here in the Monadnocks. Stay tuned for morning updates.
SYNOPSIS...
AN INTENSIFYING COASTAL STORM WILL MOVE UP THE COAST SATURDAY AND

DAMAGING WINDS AND RAIN TO THE REGION. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER

10/31 - 6:47 AM: Happy Halloween! Only some minor adjustments to the forecast, otherwise we are pretty much on track. Coastal storm begins to move up the coast tonight. I think we'll remain dry tonight for the trick or treaters with the first showers popping up after 10PM. The track of the storm appears to be far enough east to take all snowfall out of the forecast. However, the highest terrain still might see a little at the end. This will be more of a coastal storm so more rain will fall in eastern areas. The winds will begin to pick up tonight and Saturday looks to be a stormy day with rain and gusty winds through Saturday night. Seasonal tempos around 50° today. Tonight we drop to the upper 30s and on Saturday we don't get out of the mid 40s with strong gusty winds. Those winds may cause scattered power outages. Lots of clouds around on Sunday, cold, highs only around 40° with strong winds continuing.

Another quiet weather day for Halloween. Increasing clouds later in the day with highs around 50°. Showers work into the area very late Friday night as a coastal storm begins to track north. This storm will affect our weather this weekend. The Weekend Outlook E-mail will be out tonight and I will try to detail what might occur. Sign up below.

NEW OWC Garage Sale going on now - 10/31/14

Regional Weather Discussion ...

More of a treat than a trick for festivities tonight, but changes come in over the weekend.

The final day of October will be dry and a bit cooler with some sunshine giving way to clouds later in the day. Highs will be between 48-56° with a light wind this afternoon.

Tonight is looking good for the trick or treaters with clouds and temps in the 40s (there have certainly been much colder conditions in many prior years).

Now to the weekend...an extra chill will be in the air and there could even be a few flakes of snow later Saturday and/or Saturday Night. At this point, it looks like a big storm will form and stay mostly out to sea. If close enough, clouds will bring mainly rain showers in the afternoon with highs in the 40s. As temperatures cool off Saturday night there will be places that see those areas of light rain change to light snow or flurries before ending early Sunday morning, maybe a scattered light coating of snow. From there, the northerly winds take over. Some gusts over 30-35 mph Sunday afternoon will make it feel much colder than highs in the lower 40s.

Have a great Halloween and weekend!!!
