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:

8/31 -  6:00 PM: A moisture staved cold front is dropping south out of Canada at this hour. Clouds will increase this evening then skies will clear out once again. This "cold" front will drop temps for Tuesday by about 5° with an onshore flow. By Wednesday that high drops further south and bring hot, humid air back into the region. At this point Wednesday looks to be the hottest day of the week. A stronger cold front arrives either Wednesday night or Thursday with some showers and cooler air. However, warmer air builds back in for the late week and next weekend periods.

A cold front will drop south from Canada today, but there won't be any showers. instead, very warm to hot weather will be the rule today. Highs in the upper 80s here in Peterborough, with low 90s south and east. The humidity will continue to rise. Clearing skies tonight with lows in the mid and upper 60s. A bit cooler on Tuesday with highs in the mid and upper 80s, then hot weather returns again for Wednesday and possibly Thursday.

A dry westerly flow sets up for Monday with temps jumping into the upper 80s and low 90s. A weak cold front arrives for Monday night, but no rain and by Tuesday temps only drop about 5° into the mid and upper 80s. We'll warm up gain Wednesday into the upper 80s and low 90s. All the while the humidity will continue to creep up. A back door cold front may drop down from the north later in the week, cooling us down, but that is uncertain at the moment.

OWC Deals - 8/26/2015

Regional Weather Discussion ...

After a break from the higher temps and humidity, it returns for a good part of this week.

Today is going to be increasing warmer and more humid than the weekend. Highs will be in the 80s statewide, a few southern areas could tip out right around 90° with a westerly breeze. Dew points will up into the 60s this afternoon too. There is a very small chance of a passing shower this afternoon (chance of 20% up north).

It will be a degree or two cooler Tuesday (80-88°) with a northwesterly breeze. Sunny and still dry.

Wednesday will likely be the hottest day of this stretch with highs for most approaching 90 or higher. The humidity will also be high. Expect sunny skies.

Thursday is the transition day as a cold front slides south out of Canada and kicks out the heat- expect a few scattered thunderstorms.

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